From Buick Master Parts book paint code 1 is Carlsbad black,trim no 70 gray heather Bedford cord I think all of the closed cars were the two tone interior moldings but I don’t have the color codes for them.

Hello - the dash is two colors and the metal speaker grille mesh was gold anodized.  Not sure of the paint codes.

I said "anodized"  It's just spray paint I believe..

My car is same codes.  Very original and lower mileage.

 

Dash is the shades in the picture immediately above, but the tone of the paint is flatter, some degree of semigloss.  Perhaps 60%?  I think if the dash is too shiny there's potentially a problem with glare.

 

I have seen many black 76S's over the years, and sometime the two dash colors are reversed.  But I don't know how that relates to interior codes.

Hello again, I believe the interior moldings and dash were unbuffed lacquer. I reduced the amount of gloss when refinishing the dash on my 49 .Being a convertible, it matches body color.
