  • Seafoam green?

    Was seafoam green a Studebaker exterior color? If so, does anybody have a picture of a Stude in this color and possibly a current paint formula? thanks jimmijim

    I think this 66 Lark may be seafoam green:





    The photos appear to be washed out though - it should be greener than it looks in the pictures.

    There was a guy in LA who had a seafoam green GT Hawk for sale in the last couple of months. I couldn't find any pictures though. It's the only one I've ever seen.

              My wife's '55 E7 pickup is painted 1960 Stude truck green--forget the name, but that's the color we had matched up. She wanted a Stude color but didn't really care about it being from the correct year. The wheels are 1960 Stude Truck red.

              I don't know if this is "seafoam" to you, but it's darn close to what I think of as "seafoam."

                Thanks to all. My friend wants to paint his Vespa scooter Seafoam, but needed a color sample to make sure of his choice. You folks is great. Yes you is. jimmijim

                        I thought Sea Foam Green was a 56 color.

                            Seafoam is a 1956 color and Ellenore is seafoam and Glenbrook green

                            [IMG]http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v447/jbwhttail/


                            I can supply the formula if needed

                            It is an addiction!

                              I thought it was Seaside and Glenbrook?
