RE: [GFS] 57 Fury paint sample needed

I am certain any dupont or PPG paint dealer can pull up the color
formulation from the color codes off ditzler paint chips available all the
time on Ebay. Or possibly some other fury owner will have the
formulation.... It is not a disaster, just an inconvenience. If you don't
find it that way then let me know and I may be able to help.

Subject: [GFS] 57 Fury paint sample needed

Hi all.
A tragedy has befallen me and my Fury, and I am hoping someone will be able
to help me out. When I dissassembled my 57 Fury for restoration, and prior
to acid dipping, I had my spraypainter come and take a color match off the
car, from a location under the roofrail weatherstrip which had never been
painted. My spraypainter has moved premises and in the move, you guessed it,
he has lost my paint match samples. How am I going to get the correct color
for a 1957 Plymouth Fury/Sand Dune White? He says that the original paint
formulas are of no use, as some of the tinters are no longer used. The
original paint chip charts are hopelessly unreliable due to differences in
color from one chart to the next, the sample of paint on the chart is too
small, and also the paint color sample is now 47 years old which can change
the color too. While it may look correct to the eye, the color could be
totally incorrect when applied to an entire car. I do not want to match to
an already restored car, as I am then relying on someone else's
interpretation of the color. What can I do? Anyone got a 1000 miles 57 Fury
that they can send me their fuel filler door for a color match?  ...
There is a new device ("spectrometer" or something) apparently which you sit
on a car and it analyzes the paint, but this would have to involve a very
original unmolested car to be accurate. Any ideas anyone...? This is a real
pickle-mine is the only 57 Fury in the country, so I have no avenues to
pursue in this country. Any help appreciated. Glenn, 57 Fury, New Zealand.
