  • 1956 Hawk, January Turning Wheels

    I have just received my January T.W. magazine, I would like to find out what the paint codes are on the '56 Hawk on the front cover. We had a '57 Commander in the family with similar colors, would like to paint my '58 2 door with same combination. Perhaps someone (maybe the owners of featured car) can tell me what the paint color codes are, as I cannot determine by looking on the net.
    Help would be greatly appreciated.

    I/We(I have a wife) own the car on the cover of Turning Wheels January 2008. The colors re Seaside Green(light color) and Glenbrook Green. The color combination was a 1956 color and changed a little for 1957. I'll be happy to email you the formula to mix the paint as it is if you wish.

    If you want the 1957 colors, http://www.ncsdc.com/TechnicalPages/PaintForms.htm


    Months back I emailed the paint formula to Ray-Lin but they aren't up yet

        Thank you for your prompt reply. Your Golden Hawk is gorgeous, thank you for sharing with every one on the Turning Wheels mailing list.
        I would appreciate if you could e-mail me the color combinations you used. I will look up the mix formula for the '57's as well.

                The 1956 colors are Seaside Green(light green) and Glenbrook Green(dark green), the formula below is a Diamont(manufacturer) formula and may differ if you use another paint manufacturer, in fact I know it will. The paint was matched to original paint that had been hidden from the elements behind trim pieces measured by a color spectrometer.


                Seaside Green

                UR50 Universal Mid Temp 11.5

                BC190 White 110.3

                BC500 Blue/Green 5.8

                BC405 Bright Blue .4

                BC200 Black .2

                BC655 Organic Yellow .1

                Genbrook Green

                UR50 Universal Mid Temp 9.9

                BC500 Blue/Green 41.2


                BC171 Medium Aluminum 18.9

                BC410 Green Blue 19.4

                BC200 Black 10.0

                The above formula is for Diamont paint and for mixing Quarter pints of
                paint. This is formulated for base coat/clear coat.

                        Don't we all wear them???????

                        I remmber painting a 1954 hardtop in Sandusky orange in shorts and sandles one summer night. The remainder of the summer I wores shoes as I had a nice orange toe nail color well into the fall.

                        Funny how in the 1970's few even thought about a respirator.

                            Joe, although I posted something similar here after I saw your car in South Bend last summer, yours is without a doubt the most beautiful '56 Golden Hawk I've ever seen! Great photo on the cover of this month's TW! That color combination is stop-you-dead-in-your-tracks gorgeous! After yours, I would say the next prettiest one I remember was in a pink and white combination (was it called 'Rosebud'? I don't know if it was an original color or not, but it was striking). It was owned by a fellow in the Pittsburgh area whose name escapes me, but I haven't seen it in at least ten years or more.
