    What year was the last year that auto manufactures used single stage paint?

    What year was the last year that auto manufactures used single stage paint? My dad still thinks that auto companies are still painting cars with single stage on some cars or trucks.

    There are still a few cars that have single stage paint.

    Some Lexus vehicles have a black single stage. Also, Lancers have single stage paint.

    Really I never new that thanks. I guess my dad won the bet. The bet was if the car manufactures still painted single stage paint cars I guess I lost.

    Wow I thought they stopped using single stage a long time ago.

    About 95% of new cars built today have b/c - c/c....

    That is hard to say...

    I believe GM and Ford started using BC/CC around 1985 with the F250/350's getting it around 1987.

    Each manufacturer had its own intro to BC/CC, and while there are a few exceptions (certain reds in 1990's by Ford,. etc) and black with the Lexus of certain years, like Mike said, ~95% are BC/CC today.

    I have a 1986 Bronco with factory BC/CC. I'm not too sure what my truck had, since it was repainted at some point in time.

    The later 80's does definitely seem to be when Ford started switching.

    Don't all white cars have single stage paint?

    Our Porsche has a white PPG BC / CC paint job. Also, our Lumina from a while back had a white BC / CC paint.
