I recently acquired a 59 royal 2 door hardtop. Its 2 tone blue. But has vinyl roof. Question is. Is the roof suppose to be top fin color. Or main body color

Using the 58 paint codes as a guide, the first letter = roof and fins, the second = the saddle and the third = Lower. Probably doesn't work if 59s only used two colours, not three.
From the brochures, it looks like for 1959 the first letter = roof, fins and lower and the second letter = saddle. BUT there are also style numbers (??)/ Ron will tell us what is what.

1958 (with 59 below the 58 sheet):



Example 2 tone blue 1959:



Here are some sample 1959 paint code sheets:
