    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.

    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!

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