Chrysler code DT8153 - blue
This blue automotive paint color is most commonly known as Aqua Blue. Other common color promotional names include Azure, Starlight Blue, Jamaica Blue, Blue, Sky Blue, and Valiant Light Blue. The color formulation has been used between 1955 and 1983, primarily by GMC; but also by GM, Dodge, Chrysler, Plymouth, and DeSoto. We have records of this color appearing on the following models: Chrysler Special Order / Fleet, Valiant, and Dart. 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, DT8153 appears to be a special order paint for a popular early paint named Aqua Blue by GMC.
