  • NEW Paint Code Formula for 1961 Silver Wheels

    Does anyone have any info on a paint formula for the "61 silver" wheel color?

    I don't know that it is any different than standard Aluminum Silver Automotive spraying Enamel.

      I always considered the color to be argent, if that may help.

        Not me.

        I consider 'argent' to be a matte silver finish with no lustre at all to it. 1966 Commander and Wagonaire instrument cluster outer surrounds come to mind with this flat silver finish on them.

        1961 wheels had a gloss or semi-gloss silver finish on them.

          Aluminum Silver does dull pretty quickly, so today my '61 Cruiser Wheels look dull, but you can still tell they were bright, shiny Aluminum Silver when New.
          Just like the late '57 Sedan/Wagon and '58 front stone pans and '58 to '61 Engines, the later turn Gold from the Heat and rust.

            You might try Arevoe engine enamel in universal silver. Sprays well, covers well, dries quickly, looks good.
