Help with 1977 paint code

The rating plate paint code on my 1977 F150 is "BR". This is a two tone paint code, I know that the B and R indicate the actual two digit/letter code I need in order to request the right paint. I checked Mil1ion's (sp) site which has the data for a '78 but it apparently is not the same as for '77. Anyone offer any advice?

You mean your truck isn't Dark Jade (B) & Light Jade (R) in colour ?

That's what is says about the 77 as it does about the 78 on my page.

The top of that page mentions 77's.


Anyway, Go to this site and save it as one of your favourites.

Yeah, I already looked at that page, probably got it from your site. Dark jade metallic and light jade would be an interesting combination wouldn't it. Mines a metallic green with a white top. I'm sure of the BR as I did a rubbing of the data plate, much easier to read that way.
From the chips I'd say "jade poly". Dark jade metallic is too, well, dark.

If the truck has White on it that is code M.


Since you don't have a gallery how are we going to see the truck or the rating plate rubbing ?

Could the door have been changed without retaining the original rating plate ?

No, I took my drivers test in this truck in 1977, despite many miles of teenager driving it still has the same drivers door. I agree with what BR decodes to, but.... I was hoping 77 paint codes were different than 78. Thanks for the help.
