Re: [GFS] 57 Fury paint sample needed

Thanks for the reply.
The paint suppliers down here are most unhelpful. They are from the school of store attendants who
always say "If you don't see it on the shelf then we don't have it."
I do have the 1957 Plymouth Colors paint chip chart. Bulletin No. 25 (Sheet 1)

Under ' "DUCO" Stock, Order and Code Number' is the code "2547".
Under that it says 246-90996 Sand Dune White.

Under "Combination and Part Number" it says AAA
Under that it says "and Int."
Under that it says (C-9105-E)

Under the actual paint chip sample it says " DUCO 2547"
Under that it says "DULUX 93-90996" and then after parentheses it says SAND DUNE WHITE.

Do you think that you would be able to enquire over there for me? I know exactly how they will treat
me if I call up from New Zealand and say that I am trying to find a paint formula for a 47 year old

Any help appreciated.
Thanks George!
