  • Ojai Green Color

    Has anyone heard of Ojai Green as a color for a 1950 Champion. I am thinking of painting the Mistress in what appears to be the original color. Several members of the local club tell me that is Ojai Green, only painted on California Studes. I cannot find any reference to that color anywhere. Am I being sent on a Jackalope hunt, or was there such a color?

    Thanks!

    Ron

    No Ojai Green in my paint chips: But, here are the choices:

    52 shows: Tahoe Green, Shadow Green

    50-51 shows: Aqua Green, Shenandoah Green,Rio Green

    49 shows: Glacier Green, Willow Green, Bermuda Green

    48 shows: Parkway Green, Peacock Green, Shenandoah Green Light

    47 shows: Shenandoah Green Light, Shenandoah Green Dark, Balsam Green Metallic

    46 shows: Sagamore Green Dark, Sagamore Green Light

    Studebaker did have some "spring colors" and I'm not 100% sure if I have them all. I have a book with paint chips from 1936 through 1965 All Studebaker.

            Well, I found a Jackalope. (photo from 1974)



            "The Jackalope (Lepus-temperamentalus) is one of the rarest animals in the world. A cross between an extinct pygmy-deer and a species of killer-rabbit, they are extremely shy unless approached. None have ever been captured alive and this rare photo shows a mighty buck about to strike.

            Known by the ancients as "deerbunnies", it wasn't until the early 1960's that the modern more fearsome "jackalope" name was adopted.

            It is written that you can extract a Jackalope's milk as it sleeps belly up at night. The milk is belived to be medicinal and can be used for a variety of afflictions. The truth is these creatures are aggressive and unpredictable, and should not be provoked for any reason!"


            I wasn't able to find anything on Ojai Green...
