Notes/Caveats for 1964 Chevelles:
* Only the Fremont, CA. assembly plant used letters for the paint codes, all other U.S. assembly plants use a 3-digit number. Fremont also often included a third letter indicating the wheel color. Normally the wheel color was dependent on whether optional full wheel covers were ordered. In the case of optional wheel covers being ordered, the wheels were painted black. When no optional full wheel covers were ordered and the car was equipped with hub caps (often referred to as 'dog dish' or 'poverty' caps) the wheels were painted lower body color. At least one exception has been found on a Fremont Fisher Body Number plate with a Malibu SS (which would have full wheel covers) showing paint code of FCF.
** The color sales name was often unique to Chevrolet. Other GM divisions with the same paint code often used different sales names for the same color. For example, Chevrolet's Ermine White was Buick's Arctic White, Chevrolet's Ember Red was Buick's Granada Red, etc. Same paint colors, different sales names for their respective division.
*** Figures are from GM's own documentation. There is not a breakdown of color vs. series/body style; the figures are for all 1964 Chevelles.
**** Several Fremont, CA. Fisher Body Number plates have been discovered with color code "FCF." Other two-tone color differences may have occurred at the Fremont assembly plant as well.

Notes/Caveats for 1965 Chevelles:
* Paint code designations were standardized to two letters, the first being the lower body color and the second being the upper body color such as "AA" or "CC." Convertibles and vinyl top optioned Chevelles will have a number as the second paint character noting the convertible or vinyl top color as applicable such as "A2" for Tuxedo Black lower body color and black convertible or vinyl top. Fremont often had a third paint letter to designate the wheel color. Fremont also often included a third letter (such as LL L, CK A, etc. indicating the wheel color. Normally the wheel color was dependent on whether optional full wheel covers were ordered. In the case of optional wheel covers being ordered, the wheels were painted black. When no optional full wheel covers were ordered and the car was equipped with hub caps (often referred to as 'dog dish' or 'poverty' caps) the wheels were painted lower body color.
** The color sales name was often unique to Chevrolet. Other GM divisions with the same paint code often used different sales names for the same color. For example, Chevrolet's Ermine White was Buick's Arctic White, Chevrolet's Ember Red was Buick's Flame Red, etc. Same paint colors, different sales names for their respective division.
