Looking At A 92 400 Wondering If Paint Is Original

Recommended Posts

Hi,

The car I am looking at buying is dark blue, the owner called it Aztec blue. I am wondering if this is a factory color since I have never seen it before? Plus it has gray leather interior. Also, the stock wheels have been chromed and I was wondering what that might do to the value of the car?

Thanks for your help,

Brad

Inside the drivers door jam, there is a label. Under the barcode you will find the the following:

cr/tr : xxx/zzz

the xxx represents the color code of your car.

You can go to your dealer and they will tell you what the name is.

If your car has had a color change, this code will do you no good, but any competent bodyshop can tell you if the car has been completely repainted with a different color/shade.

Regarding the chromed wheels: They were optional equipment.

Hope this helps

For that year there was a Cobalt Blue Metallic and a Dark Blue Gray Metallic. Not sure where the Aztec Blue came from, but it may be the Cobalt. Thats as per Shwerin-Williams paint code finder

It is completely possible that Sherwin-Williams has the paint listed as a different title. It is their paint after all although its supposed to be color matched

Give the Lexus dealers the VIN # and they will tell you whats the original color of the car.

I think you can just call them and get the answer.
