Anybody know of cross-overs to modern paints for any of the 56 Dodge paints? Specifically for me I am interested in these colours:

1. 505 Wedgewood blue

2. 506 Royal Blue poly (I've found a couple of Duplicolor (tm) metallic blue paints for early 90's Chryslers that are pretty close)

3. 555 Sapphire White

Anyone explain why the paint code sheet above says that my 56 CR D500's tricolour combo is 561-2 (Sapphire white roof, Royal blue poly saddle and Wedgewood blue body) but my cowl tag just says, PT = paint(?) = 261?

Okay new 56 Custom Royal paint question. Now that the D-500 engine is running quite nicely thank you, I'm moving on to interior stuff. This afternoon I polished off a "stain" on the outside of the windshield using my becoming favourite tool, "VIM" (a slightly abrasive kitchen stove-top cleaner). The stain was some kind of drip residue, almost like glass etching, from a steam heating pipe that dripped on the windshield during its 25 year in a underground parking garage at a local highrise apt building. VIM took it off or polished it off very easily.

With that success, I took the VIM inside and started on the passenger side of the dash - worked well to take off the oxidized paint. Then I used Meguire's Scratch X 2.0 to continue bringing up the dash paint. Maybe it was the lighting but the dark part of the dash does NOT look like the same metallic blue that is on the steering column or around the inside frames of the door windows. It looks dark blue but NOT metallic. Is there a fourth paint colour in my 3 tone combo.

This would be a good example of a minty 56 Custom Royal in the same colours as mine (it doesn't look metallic either):



VIM (we've been using this since we lived in Germany 1986-87):

Its a flat paint so that you don't get a reflection.

I guess nobody can confirm that PT =261 actually means the 561-2 paint combo (Sapphire white roof (R) , Royal blue poly saddle (S) and Wedgewood blue body (L))

Just removed the drivers door panel which had water damage and fount that it is marked "D633 C 541". I know D633 = Dodge Custom Royal and therefore the cowl tag TR = 541 must be the colour combo for the trim, as shown in the second photo (not mine but same colors as mine).

And it wasn't just in this thread. This is probably the same person that did this awhile ago. Joins up with new user name and posts one photo. Most often of 1954 Plymouths. Somehow he has to be stopped especially after posting the 59 Chevy photo. I d*mn near threw up in my throat.

I hate to say this but I am very likely to have a GM paint (code) on my 56 Dodge. The Chrysler/Dodge 505 Wedgewood blue does not exist in any modern paint systems. Today at a body shop paint mixer/supplier we went through some options and I picked a 1977 Chevy light blue as being very close to what is on the car now. The good news is that paint has a modern code/recipe/mix and therefore if it works close enough I could get more than just spray bombs mixed up.

The paint shop guy commented on my dark blue paint as being too metallic (it's a 92 Neon colour, Intense Blue Metallic). I had found a closer match to OE Royal Blue poly back in the fall but was a 83 GM colour. Now that I am going down
a GM road with the 2815 Light Blue, I might have to rethink (and redo) the dark blue.
