Although the car is long sold, I have always wondered what Packard called its beautiful original color but I don't see it on the paint chips. It was a very bright nonmetallic almost plastic-looking blue. Anyone know its name?

This car also had an original two-tone interior with all the seats and rear armrests being dark blue and the window moldings in the back also being blue. When I stripped them, there was no sign that they had ever been wood grained, yet the fronts and dash were wood grained. I still have the original seat upholstery which has the Packard name stamped on the underside.

As a little history, I bought this car, which had been repainted bright yellow, as a parts car in the late '60s or early '70s for the 1939 Six that I was working on at the time but the 1940 proved to be in far better condition so I sold the 1939 and kept the 1940 until about fifteen years ago. The 1939 also came with a 1940 parts car located in another part of the state (Washington) and shortly after I was given another 1940 parts car and bought a 1941 Henney-Packard so by the time I was 17 years old I had five Packards! At that time, none were even considered to be antiques yet.
