Well I was hoping we could have extracted some of the paint codes or formulas by now. Perhaps everyone was blessed with perfect original paint!

If you folks have any, lets help the next guy out, and get those paint code or formulas posted in the Paint X-Ref.

Thanks!

Two words: Cavalier maroon.


Maybe it's three words with "metallic" tossed in for good measure.


One of the Fredmobiles is going to want to be red at some point, sooner rather than later, it is hoped.

There aren't many examples to reference and there are historical misrepresentations as well. For example, the Central Railroad of New Jersey used something they called Packard Blue that was too light.

Hirsch offered a Packard Blue that wasn't too bad. Attached is an old picture of what looks like Packard Blue. I do have a snap shot of the Hirsch color on a Packard 12, but it is in storage.

If everything is a dead end, I would go to the old formula and try to come up with something myself. Get the darkest blue I can find, add a proportion of black, light green, and white to get what I want and then move on from there.
However, these modern materials are expensive and they only sell minimum quantities.
