1941 180 paint code

Is there a number on the car that will tell you the original paint code or number? My car was repainted years ago so going by the color on the car may not be correct. The interior is like a dark green . The outside of the car to me sometimes looks blue other times it looks green to me. Was there certain colors for senior cars? I noticed in an RM paint chip chart there only seems to be 1 green called Chicory green Iridescent. But other paint charts show several greens for 1941

No, there is no number or letter code on the vehicle to indicate the original paint scheme, Packard did not begin including paint and trim info on the ID plate until late in the 22nd series. The paint and trim information for your car did appear on internal company documents (including the Vehicle Unit Record card) but only a handful of these have survived and those only from a. handful of dealership copies of those records.

There were several greens for both junior and senior models, one of mine was two-tone, Chickory over Grove green.

Chickory over Grove is an attractive combo. For the OP, Grove is the only dark green for 41, I believe.

This 1941 180 Formal Sedan is Grove Green, the darker of the two greens. Photo by this writer from the 2013 Metro Region CCCA Dust-off run.
