This green automotive paint color is most commonly known as Emerald Green. The color formulation has been used between 1995 and 2000, primarily by GM. We have records of this color appearing on the following models: Chevy Truck, Oldsmobile, and Chevrolet. 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). Starting in 1994, GM began using a letter as the last digit for all new WA paint codes.

Variations of the exterior paint code WA177B, which may appear on body data tags include: 177B, U177B, and L177B (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.


Paint code for Lime Rock Green is WA136X

Below is the GM Emerald Green on 2000 Chevy Tahoe.
Interesting bit is the fact that WA136X shows up in the paint code section of the parts catalog for 2015 Camaro. So I wonder is it different or the same?

It's one of the nicest Metallic Greens they could put on a Camaro judging by the photo's. Can't wait to see one in person.

I highly doubt this color will be the exact 95-00 color. Though I remember an Emerald Green on 97-00 Monte Carlo's & Lumina's that looked absolutely great in sunlight.

Paint code for Lime Rock Green is WA136X

They should name this color "it's better than that putrid purple, green"

Before you guys and gals get excited, keep in mind that GM's photography on the internet is often awful. Blue velvet went from a medium metallic blue to IBM. And I bet this Emerald Green could be just a Polo/ Lime rock green in person. If that is the case it is a pretty blah color. I hope I'm wrong.

Hey everyone,

I just want to express a huge THANK YOU for your support of our #NameThatCamaro social campaign. Being that this was our first time integrating an automotive enthusiast forum in this manner, my team and I are happy to report that it was a huge success! Monitoring the anticipation was lots of fun and may even open to the door to other forum/brand ideas down the road. Thanks again guys and gals!

I hope the team heard us wanting this color widely available. Because my 1LE is going straight for a trade in when that happens.
