GM code WA4964 - blue
This blue automotive paint color is most commonly known as Light Blue. Other common color promotional names include Glacier Blue, Medium Blue, and Dark Blue. The color formulation has been used between 1977 and 1979, primarily by Chevrolet; but also by Pontiac, Oldsmobile, GM, Buick, Cadillac, and GMC. We have records of this color appearing on the following models: Oldsmobile, Chevrolet, Camaro, Nova, Buick, Firebird, Cadillac, Pontiac, and GMC. See the full detailed list below.

GM paint manufacturing codes come in two forms, the short 1 to 3 digit model/year code which changes frequently; and beginning in the 1960's a longer 4 digit code which starts with the letters "WA" or "WE". Sometimes called "Fisher Paint codes"; codes beginning with WA are production paints, WE are commercial or special order paints with codes typically starting with '5' (i.e. WE5xxx). Early use of Fisher Paint codes included extra digits between the "W" and "A" to indicate the type and sometimes location of the paint. For example: WOA or W0A for a flat or suede trim paint, W25A for semi gloss trim colors, and W30A for standard gloss colors.

Variations of the exterior paint code WA4964, which may appear on body data tags include: 4964, U4964, and L4964 (the prefix U for upper body, or L for lower body). Location of the GM paint code plate varies depending on the year and model of the vehicle common places are on the top or near the top of the back engine compartment shroud panel just behind the steering wheel, hinge pillar of the driver's side door, trunk or rear hatch, side of door, glove compartment, or behind the driver's seat. Check for either the short year/make/model paint code or the longer manufacturing (Fisher) paint code.
