  • Paint Colors

    I am restoring a 61 Lark and am down to doing the paint. I am looking for the proper colors for the engine block/head & valve cover(6 cyl), trans(3 speed), gas tank and rear axle. Most of it is oxide red (read rusty)the engine has been repained green some time in the past and three layers of paint on the valve cover are all different. I want to get it right the first time!! Anyone have a source or the info?

          I will put some pictures up as soon as I get the car finished. Right now it is apart in three places, chassis in my garage, engine at machine shop and body at restorer's shop, all being worked on. I hope to have it on the road by June.
