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).

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.

While researching interior codes, I came across a 56 Custom Royal cowl tag showing 271 as the paint code:



This is listed as 571-2, i.e. Sapphire White roof, iridescent charcoal poly. saddle and oriental coral lower.

Like this one:

And while I am on a roll, here is a 274 code 56 Dodge (DepsilonD's) (thanks Dave - found them via Googling for 56 Dodge Order Codes)

His cowl plate showing Paint (PNT) = 274



So from the colour chart, that would be 574-2, i.e. Sapphire white roof, irridescent charcoal poly saddle and crown yellow lower, like this:

I was going to contact the eBay seller of the white, dark green, light green 2dr Custom Royal Lancer regarding paint and trim codes but I can't now. Well that was fast. It seems to be gone, deleted, no longer there.

I would have guessed the paint code would be 265

Sapphire white roof
Jade Green Poly saddle
Sea Foam Green lower

Add is still there and the seller responded to my code questions: "underhood tag reads 11 11 07 045 body 836----paint 265----trim 543 terry in okc"

Picked these off eBay because I could see that they had the formulations for the paints, not just the names and codes. Took them to the people that I have been using to mix up paint for me in hopes that they would be able to use the formulas to mix proper Dodge colours. Nope. The "toners" used in those formulation are no longer available. I guess my "Wedgewood" (light) blue will have to stay as 1977-78 Chevrolet Code 20 Light Blue.

Anyway, for future reference here are the sheets that I bought:

Not directly but it turns out that have been there sometime in the past 15 months. No crosses to anything modern that I can see for the 56 505 Wedgewood blue. Maybe I am missing something?

Here is an example of the Misty Orchid and Regal Orchid combo under a Sapphire roof on a 56 Coronet D500 (this car was local to me at one point but I never saw it ):

Marc: Thanks!! That link/site seems to be a winner. Lots of good info including a paint code for my blue dash *AND* supposed modern equivalents, like the one below:

(I have no clue what the results mean but I presume that a paint shop might, otherwise I guess you have to order from the AutoColorLibrary folks (??))

I've been down to TCP Global once and have used their single stage Restoration Shop paint on a car trailer. Seemed decent, but I don't have enough paint experience to really offer anything to this conversation.

The 56 Dodge two-tone and three-tone colour combos according to the 56 Dodge Data book.

I always wondered about the colours in the taillight area. Now I know the rationale(s).

I bought this off eBay because I could see that there were formulas for the paint. I finally got the package today and immediately took it to where I am getting my paint matched (or at least trying). The paint specialist looked at the charts and said, "Nope. All too old. Paints are gone, toners are different, can't do anything with it. Sorry. "

Oh well. Thought I would share anyway. The back of the second sheet provided me with info that I hadn't figured out before, i.e. when the three tone paint code starts with 2, the roof and taillight area was sapphire white. If it started with 3, then the roof and the taillight areas were black. There is one code, 460, that had a oriental coral (red) roof, white saddle and black body. I have never seen a photo of one of those.

See attached.
