  • original exterior paint color

    I purchased a 1956 champion 4 door and want to find the original paint colors for the interior as well as the exterior. Is there a way to get this?

    You may find a paper tag under the glovebox with the original exterior color. If it's gone you'll need to purchase a production order from the Studebaker National Museum.
    I would think you should beable to find some spot (inside door hinge post, under windshield rubber,under door threshold, etc.) with a remnant of original color and match it to a paint chip at
    I don't know if there were interior color options.
    Stay tuned for others' response.
