  • Picture wanted: 47-51 in Copper Mist

    Can anyone give me a picture or a link to one which shows a 4 door Commander/Land Cruiser in Copper Mist Metallic? I've seen two different paint chips now, and one was considerably more reddish than the other. Besides, I'd just like to see what my black one would like if I change colors in the restoration process. (I'm just not that wild about the current black.)

    Also, does anyone know if it was usual to paint the door latch hardware body color in 1950? A '48 project I looked at had the latch plates and the hardware on the center post unpainted. Mine is currently sprayed black. The interior window bezels and dash top being silver makes me wonder a little about that black paint, too. And, did Studebaker production use a red oxide primer in 1950?

    I think I might have found such a picture. But I can't get the good-times.webshots album from Omaha 2006 to come up on line right now.

    Does anyone remember a picture of a '50 Commander front end (side view) sitting in a long lineup of Avanti's?? It was painted in a bronze metallic. Is that what Copper Mist is supposed to look like?

    If I can get the pictures back up here at some point, I'll add a link in here so the car shows up.



    OK, here's the webshots picture with the '50 in the foreground.

        The latch parts were painted body color. If you've seen one that's bare metal it's probably new latch parts.

        No deceptive flags to prove I'm patriotic - no biblical BS to impress - just ME and Studebakers - as it should be.

                    That is my webshots page, but I have the free account. (Actually 3 of them, when I run out of room I just create another one with a bogus email address. Studebaker people are frugal, ya know. )

                    Just to make things simpler, here's the pic. [8D] I put it on another photo site.

                        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.

                            So, the plot thickens!

                            Thanks fofr that i nfo on the two shades. I only have two pages of color chips from a shop manual of some kind. The Copper Mist is shown on the second page, where it mentions the colors were also available in 48 and 49. But I had no indication there were two shades.

                            The chip I have looks a lot more like a bronze than a copper. But if the Stude in that picture is copper mist, it definitely looks lighter than my paint chip.

                            I did some fine tuning in ImageFX on my Amiga computer and got it to match the chip pretty close, though!
