  • 1953 Lombard Green color formula

    Hello,
    Does anyone out there know a modern mix formula for 1953 Lombard Green. I'd prefer a single stage enamel vs a base/clear. However, the base/clear might get me to the equivalent single stage.
    Regards,
    Charlie Kraynack

    Ask your paint supplier if they can do ~1971 Dodge truck "Pine Green #2". That is a nearly spot on match to '53 Lombard green and what I used for the roof of my car. I got this in Dupont Nason Pul-Cryl II acrylic enamel back in 200. Don' know if still available.

      Jeff,
      I will check my supplier and see if he can make a match. Any color photos of your car?

          Jeff,...you've got one heckuva long memory!!!

          Hey, Charles! One of my best friends was born and raised in Tunkhannock! Not a big town; you probably know him. Last name Smith!

            I lied a little bit.... No #2 in the name.

            I can't find my '53 paint chip sheet to do a side by side, but here is a scan of the '71 dodge truck pine green chip from my old Dupont chip book. You really need to compare these in bright sun to judge the match (which I did) and they are extremely close, as to you need to have the 2 overlapped in the sun to tell them apart, and even then is very subtle.

            got this in Dupont Nason Pul-Cryl II acrylic enamel back in 200.
            Haha. It was 2001. Actually, I went and looked at the can in the garage before I posted that.

            EDIT: Sleeping on the problem helped! Woke up this morning remembering another place I should look for that '53 paint sheet and there it was! Here is a scan of the lombard green chip to compare against the dodge truck pine green above. Scanner settings identical in both scans and no post processing.

            Its a very dark color and does not show well in room lighting. Best seen outdoors in the sun.

              Lombard Green was reintroduced as a 1958 'Scotsman only' color.

                  Just got the production order for my 57 scotsman.
                  It came with P5788 Lombard Green.
                  I'm assuming its the same as the 53 color.

                  I wonder how many other green scotsman wagons had this color.

                      Man, that is beautiful. Sure wish you were the one that painted my car 21 years ago.
