My 53s at the paint shop under going some Bondo removal and I still haven't made up my mind as to what color to paint it. Originally it was light blue with a dark blue top then someone painted beige over that. I'm not going to go back with the original colors and was thinking about a champagne shade but that sorta clashes with the battleship grey interior [which I'm not going to change]. Recently I saw a photo of a 61 or 62 Hawk painted Silver Mist [Stude color]. My question is - Does anyone know of a newer silver that matches this or how I could get my local paint supplier to mix a match for this color? Thanks

If you find a pic of the car in the original colors you may not mind so much. I didn't think I would like them either (my '55 was light blue) but when I saw a real car that color it actually looks quite pretty.

That said, my car is black and it's staying that way! :)

I can't answer your question on the Silver Mist, sorry, but it would be a nice color as well.

Almost forgot, I think it's dupont that has a 1-800 number where you can call up and get a modern equivalent? I know they have all the color chips on their web site.

good luck
