1937 V12 Packard engine color code

Post by Spanish Packards » Fri Apr 16, 2021 3:45 am

Dear friends,

We are restoring the mentioned car here in Spain.

I 've been trying to find the color code and cross reference but all I could find on internet is a generic mention to ''Green engine Packard color''

http://paintref.com/cgi-bin/colorcodedi ... 37&rows=50

Would anybody be able to tell which one (if any) among these ''greens'' is the right one for the engine??

I know there are several vendors offering the right color paint but since ordering paint in USA from overseas is rather difficult I would prefer to get the right code with crossed code to modern paint so we can order to make the paint here in Spain.

Many thanks in advance for your help!

I cannot vouch for this color personally but someone has put a paint cross reference at Packardinfo https://packardinfo.com/xoops/html/modules/paintxref/ which has the Packard engine green color crossing to a Dupont 546A Bell Green.

There is a web page on that Dupont number with some info and other crosses for the color that might be helpful in finding a color chip in Spain to see if it would work. http://paintref.com/cgi-bin/paintdetail ... ont=93-546
