May be a dumb question but has anyone talked to the folks at the GM Heritage Center to see what they have?

Here's a direct link to the 77 Chevelle Vehicle Information Kit available from them...

And for everyone else here the link to the page for all they GM Vehicle Information Kits...

That also clears up my confusion I had about the Firethorn interior color. Didn't know if it was Firethorn or Oxblood. Reckon' that makes Oxblood a Nova terminology.

Oxblood was the darker shade of red used on our '73-'75 "A" bodies. Firethorn is the brighter shade used on '76/'77. To confuse matters, there was also a Maroon on at least '76/'77 (and maybe other years) that looks very similar to Oxblood. www.tcpglobal.com is a good source for identifying paint colors. Look in their Library section.

Trying to decipher the interior trim code for my 73 laguna. On the cowl tag the TR number is 726. I haven't found a listing for this, anyone know the answer? I'm guessing it's green since the original paint is #44 light green.

Also, my body tag is pretty beat up, is there any company you guys know of that can restore or reproduce it legally?
