Ditzler code 60001 - orange
This orange automotive paint color is most commonly known as Omaha Orange. Another common paint color promotional name is Orange. The color formulation has been used between 1929 and 1983, primarily by Chevrolet; but also by GM, Chrysler, GMC, and Cincinnati Car Company. We have records of this color appearing on the following models: Chevy Truck, Chevrolet Special Order / Fleet, and Chrysler Special Order / Fleet. See the full detailed list below.

60001 is a paint code for PPG (Pittsburgh Plate Glass) who has been providing automotive paints since 1924 (originally Ditzler Color Company subsidiary acquired in 1928). PPG/Ditzler codes in the 10000 to 95000 range were used on new paint formulations from the late 1930's to 1968. PPG/Ditzler codes in the 60000 to 69999 range are primarily shades of orange. 60001 is a very low numbered paint code in its range, we find many of these are historic or early special use Fleet/Commercial colors. These PPG codes serve as a great way to track the usage of paint between and within vehicle manufacturers.
