GM code WA7207 - green
This green automotive paint color is most commonly known as Dark Jadestone. Another common paint color promotional name is Dark Jade Greeb. The color formulation has been used only in 1981, primarily by Chevrolet; but also by Oldsmobile, Pontiac, GM, and Buick. We have records of this color appearing only on the model of Malibu. 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).

Variations of the exterior paint code WA7207, which may appear on body data tags include: 7207, U7207, and L7207 (the prefix U for upper body, or L for lower body). Location of the GM paint code plate (Service Parts Identification tag) 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.
