Does anyone know the "name" of the medium blue color Studebaker used on 1956 Transtar trucks? I am in the process of rebuilding my Dad's truck & want to get the color right. The paint shop can match it, but I won't to know it's "name".

thanks, Bluebird

The medium blue is called Squadron Blue, and has paint code P-5643. You do know that with this solid body color, the grill, wheels, and bumpers are supposed to painted Day Break Blue (light blue).
If I was doing a '56 truck I would most likely go for the unique two-tone paint scheme.
