    The factory paint chart shows Copper Mist was a 'convertible only' color in 1949, and available on all bodies in 1950. The 1949 chart also shows Copper Mist Metallic AND Copper Mist Metallic #2. I don't have a color chip for the first one, nor do I know why it was replaced. #2 is a very light brown, could be called a tan.

    I seem to remember reading Copper Mist Metallic was a 'convertible only' color as were most of the metallic colors back then. Here is a pic of one that was at Sacremento in '03.

        Craig,

        That is [u] WAY </u> darker than my paint chip for copper mist. I guess this converible must be shade #2 of copper mist, which I don't have a chip for.

        Thanks for the info and picture.
