    Thanks Bob, I appreciate it.

    BTY, the second response listed a pretty cool Studebaker Paint website; my color wasnt there but someone put a lot of work into the site.

    Incidentally, it is spelled Chasta White in the period Ditzler catalogs I have, but I don't know if that is correct. Perhaps Chasta has something to do with Chastity?

    Those Dunkards from which the Studebaker family came were pretty straight-laced, you know! <GGG> BP

    It could also be "Congo Ivory" code 8829, Symbol W-ZY. From a Ditzler Supplemental Bulletin dated 3-17-55. The same bulletin also lists Hialeah Green, Sun Valley Yellow, and Pimlico Gray - all Speedster unique colors.

    I know that my "Black-White-Black" 1955 is Studebaker color code 2680 but what I need is the code from a paint company like R & M, Dupont, or Sherwin Williams in order to get the right mix. I hope someone has a paint chart code.

    Thanks

    Have you checked under your dash for the original paint label (and also the information on the build sheet)?

    Paint code help

    I've got a 55 Speedster in black and white. I think that the creamy-white is called "Shasta White" but I'm not sure and dont have a paint chart.

    Does anyone have a 55 paint chip chart from PPG or Sherwin Williams Etc. that lists the makers paint color code for the 55 white and black color combo.?

    Thanks in advance.
Working...
