20006 is a paint code for PPG (Pittsburgh Plate Glass) who has been providing automotive paints since 1924 (originally Ditzler Color Company subsidiary acquired in 1928). PPG/Ditzler codes from 10000 to 95000 were used on new paint formulations starting in the late 1930's and extending to around 1968. PPG/Ditzler codes in the 20000 to 29999 range are primarily shades of brown, beige, and cream. 20006 is a very low numbered paint code in its range, we find many of these are historic or early special use Fleet/Commercial colors. These PPG codes serve as a great way to track the usage of paint between and within vehicle manufacturers.
