* Discontinued April 1, 1955.

** New colors introduced April of 1955.

*** In March/April  1955 the top material changed to a vinyl-coated fabric called Cotan.  It's believed while the Polo White car began receiving the new white vinyl top, the Gypsy Red car continued to use beige canvas possibly until stock was depleted.  The use of a white vinyl or tan vinyl top is possible probably on very late Gypsy Red cars.

* Some Copper cars probably used Polo White paint in these areas.

** Red Carpeting may have been used.

*** Some cars may have been with a Sportsman Red panel.

Note:  The Light Red Vinyl listed for Light Beige trim is coordinated to Gypsy Red and is different shade than associated with Sportsman Red, however Sportsman Red Vinyl may also have been used on some, possibly early, Gypsy Red Corvettes.
