Not sure if that’s an original Packard color, but I like it!

Thanks, I like this color too. I'm currently considering having it repainted due to several paint failure spots - cracking, peeling/lifting, separation from primer coat. If the current color is correct it should be Miami Sand but that looks a bit more tan and less yellow than the current paint. I thought perhaps it was Packard Cream from the 1937 paint options which looks closer. If anyone has thoughts on the name or color match of the current color I'd appreciate the inputs. Worst case, i get the shop to do a color match.

This is my first foray into getting a car painted. I'm hunting for a paint shop within a reasonable distance with a good reputation. Not looking for a concours paint job but don't want Macco quality either. This car is a driver and I'm not worried about judging or points. Trying not to break the bank. Any thoughts on what price ranges I should expect?

A good paint job isn't cheap. The amount of prep needed is a factor. Skimping on prep assures a poor job, or one that won't last long. If you change color, it adds steps and cost. If the present paint is mostly good, spot repairs might be an option, if done correctly.

Maaco painted my 54. But I did all the body and prep work. Also I brought it to them as a bare shell. So really no masking. Even then, it was still a $3500 paint job, 10 years ago.
