Chrysler code DT5077 - 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.

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, DT5077 appears to be a special order paint for a popular early paint named Omaha Orange by Chevrolet.
