So I just got a 61 Panel (yay!) Maybe someone can assist with the colors based on my M Code?

16 01 1
• January 16, 1961

360
• North American Export

UZ 211 GRBY 717377
• Charleston
• Cargo doors right, left hand drive
• This is where I'm lost. Based on the format of XXYYZZ XX=Lower YY=Upper ZZ=Interior I come up with GR = Light Grey = L-345
So, why are there only 4 digits and what color is "BY"?

Are you sure it doesn't say GREY?

1961 Panel Color:
L 345 (GREY) light grey

It would be light grey top and bottom

Another GREY example

The seller’s photo isn’t clear, so it looks like I made a rookie mistake. I thought that was a “B” because I was thrown off by the XXYYZZ designation on the M Code technical article. Thanks for the photo of your grey one. Seller is delivering today so I’ll have a chance to see if there’s any grey paint left anywhere on this rusty relic Smile I’m looking forward to putting it back to stock.
