View Full Version : 1955 Paint Codes

To all,

I'm getting ready to repaint my 1955 Speedster. The original two-tone paint is Congo Ivory over Pimlico Gray. Does anyone know what a comparable PPG base/clear color is for these two colors? Or does anyone know where I might look for this info? Also, is the Pimlico Gray a 'metallic' color? My car is quite faded and oxidized so I can't really use a paint chip.
