Chrysler code DT4012 - black
This black automotive paint color is most commonly known as simply 'Black'. The color formulation has been used only in 1984, primarily by Dodge. We have records of this color appearing only on the model of Dodge Truck. See the detailed list below.

Some Chrysler paint manufacturing codes come in two forms, the short 1 to 3 digit model/year code which changes frequently and a longer code which does not change. One of these longer codes which we track is the DT or Dodge Truck or Fleet code. This code starts with the letters "DT" and ends in a 4 digit number. These DT codes don't change over the years for a particular paint formulation; therefore, it is the best code to track the usage of Chrysler paint. In many cases Chrysler has assigned DT codes to popular paint from other manufacturers to use as special order paints.

In this case, DT4012 appears to be a special order paint for a popular paint named Black by Dodge.
