GM code WE5748 - green
This green automotive paint color is most commonly known as simply "Green". The color formulation has been used only in 1972, primarily by GM. We have records of this color appearing only on the GM Special Order / Fleet. 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). For paint codes in the 5000-5999 range, either the WA or WE can be used; i.e. WA5748 is the same as WE5748.
Variations of the exterior paint code WE5748, which may appear on body data tags include: 5748, U5748, and L5748 (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.
