  • Comanche Red Formula

    Does anybody happen to have the formula for paint color Comanche Red, a '51 Color?? I bot a DUCO/DULUX color chip chart and it's 'not available' from there...

    Dupont Auto Paint Color Matching

    1-800-3 Dupont

    Call them with the year and color name and they'll

    give you the modern paint code.

        My local PPG paint dealer has come up with several old paint codes that I needed to match up with modern paint. Most of the long time auto paint manufactors have these or can get them. PPG and BASF are two along with Dupont as well. As a last resort, they can come up with a formula based on a part that still has good color to it that can be matched. The old codes still have to be converted to "modern" type paints.

          If you have even a color chip that is accurate or an area of the car where the paint is not faded many paint dealers can computer match the color as well. I have had both automobile paint and other type of paint color computer matched and they generally matched pretty well. Commache Red is among my favorite 1951 colors.
