Can anyone give me the paint code numbers for the attached machine?  It is fully restored except for paint and runs perfect.  I can probably have it scanned but if there is fading the results will not be correct.  Any help will be greatly appreciated.

I thought of that too but the underside is stained really bad.  I plan on just covering that underside with a darker color.  By the way Tom are you planning on Zagrays tomorrow?

Dave I hope someone can help you with that paint code. I won't be going to Zagray until the next summer show.

Can't help you but I'm curious that did company's like Sears have special paint codes like cars do?  Like one years white paint is ##4$$ and another year's white paint is %%3@  look similar but when put next to each other you could see differences . Or did the same colors run from year to year ?

Yes, i have one of these also.  And I have seen this pic before.  It is a 1966.  It is the same even the paint.   The only difference is the gas tank.   

 

Thanks for the help,

 

Dave
