  • Australian Paint Colors

    I realize this is a long shot but I wonder if anyone has Australian paint color chips???

    Richard Quinn?

    Just that one of our members has compiled a book of Aussie Studes but can't seem to get information re our colors and said last night that no-one seems interested to help him.

    John,
    these colours you are after are peculiar to Australia only. They wont appear in any US printed data.

    You will have to find Australian printed paint shop books with colour chips from 1960 to 1965.

    Bob Rischmuller in your SA club may have this information as he was in the body repair business. Jim Quigley in Melbourne may have colour chips as he collects many things Stude related and worked at Canada Car & Cycle. I also think he obtained some producion papers from the ex MD of CC & C

    Nobody in the States could really answer this question. Perhaps the only person State side would be George Hamlin.

        I would try the Australian office of Imperial Chemical Industries (ICI Autocolor). I would guess they would have been the supplier to automotive paint to the industry at the time.
