70706 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 70000 to 79999 range are primarily shades of red and pink. These PPG codes serve as a great way to track the usage of paint between and within vehicle manufacturers.
