    My 64 Cruiser was repainted in 93 and I have the modern formula for the Strato-Blue, if anyone is interested.

      Randy: I put in 64 Studebaker and it said it didn't have any paint for that year. What am I doing wrong? Thanks.

        Yup, doesn't even work for 1960!! Works great for a '64 Ford.

        OHHH! I got it, you do not use the Make, Model Year thing on the left, use the "Color Chart" on the right! OK thanks!

          Go to color charts on the upper right hand side of the page, not the search on the left.

            I tried all their searches and the closest I got for my '53 Coupe was Plymouth. Autocolorlibrary.com lists most of the chip sheets. For my purpose, I'll still have my paint supplier do a scan. If the color doesn't match it's his skin, not mine.

              PPG site needs some work. When you click on thumbnail for 1947 Studebaker-Packard(sic) it pulls up 1968 Pontiac. Some of thise colors would look pretty good on a 1947, especially compared to the generally drab colors South Bend offered in '47.
