Chrysler code DT8879 - blue
This blue automotive paint color is most commonly known as Twilight Blue. Another common paint color promotional name is Twilight Turquoise. The color formulation has been used between 1986 and 1992, primarily by Dodge; but also by Plymouth and Chrysler. We have records of this color appearing on the following models: Dodge Truck, Caravan, and Voyager. 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, DT8879 appears to be a special order paint for a popular paint named Twilight Blue by Dodge.
