    I just responded in another thread and thought I would post this for those who might be unaware of such a large and vital resource in finding that exact factory color. Ever experience that dead end you hit with most local paint jobbers/suppliers when they tell you their chip books only go back, 10-15-20 years?? No need to stress, check out the link below. . . .

    They have the most extensive library of chips in the world and can mix them all. They can go as far back as the early 1900's. You can view chips online as far back as the 1930's. You can also get the color you want in a choice of several different formulations.


    Here is a link to a page with some of the earliest dated chips, circa 1928-30. . .

    Hope this helps someone.

    Follow the link above to the Auto Color Library site. Email Jimmy. They have all kinds of mfg's chip books. Chances are if they cannot find what you are looking for in a factory color, it wasn't made. They cover the past up till the present.

    I was sooo happy when their paint actually matched my original color. I tried getting it locally using the code but it was not close. I ordered a qt and it was right on the money. I then ordered a gallon. This is a very subtle color that I love. I have had soooo much trouble getting the right color over the years. It was such a relief to get it right the first time. It seemed to spray very nice with a chinese clone gun. This is their BCCC paint.
