Re: [GFS] 57/58 FURY COLOR QUESTION





You guys are confusing the paint name with the paint number. Plymouth was not going to use a Dodge paint name, DeSoto was not going to use a Chrysler paint name. Each one of the Chrysler Corp. branches had their own paint name. However when you buy it the name is associated with a number. That paint number can be on other Chrysler Corp. cars. Not every single paint they make but a lot of them. Chrysler had all kinds of interchangeable parts that fit something other than what you were buying the part for. Why would they not do that with some of their paint also. If you can not find Buckskin Beige then get the paint number and see if it was used in other model Chrysler products in later years. When paint is mixed it is done with numbers, when paint is made for a production car it gets a number.
   Today most big paint suppliers have a computer guy that they put up against the cars paint where it is not faded---------like under the hood or trunk and they click the computer camera and it tells them the exact mix to get that color paint that is on the un faded part of the car. If you are just touching up a car then you can have them make a computer shot of the faded part of the car for a perfect match.
     This is not something I read in a book, this is something I have been doing for years on many of my collector cars.

  PS. Most of the original paint made back in the 50's 60's & 70's  is no longer made because it had chemicals in it that are outlawed today in paint.

I saw one once, back in the late 70's or early 80's a belvedere 2 door hard top,but I won't swear it wasn't a repaint. It was for sale in Tampa and was somewhat rusty and had a dent in the quarter panel.
