Think I'm going to restore something gold next year so I plan on getting the correct code of Gold for this era this fall so I can be ready in the spring.

 

 

Anyone know what the part number was for the paint? I'm trying to determine if it was all the same from the Ride-a-matic and tubeframe transition.

Chevrolet gold samples:   http://paintref.com/...Chevrolet.shtml

 

You can search the Ditzler data base here by year, make, & color:      http://paintref.com/...ler=21526,23264

 

I believe Bolens probably used an automotive color, rather than their own mixture.

 

 

Some others you can research:  1962 Chev Anniversary Gold, 1962 Rambler Corsican Gold, 1957 Chrysler Champagne Gold, 1961 Ford Honey Bronze, 1961 Ford Spanish Gold.

To the best of my knowledge 1961-1963 all used the same gold paint. The only paint code that consistently comes up is Ditzler/PPG 22390 which is listed as FMC Husky Tractor Gold. This is the same paint number that was recently brought up by one of our UK members in another thread. This appears to be a good paint code. The body shop I've worked for has its own mix station. Perhaps I can mix a small sample batch soon and check it out against some NOS parts.

Hopefully the color shows up well from this NOS part that I'll use for reference.

Thats about what I have for color on my NOS samples

The Ride-a-Matic gold and Tubeframe gold parts I have look the same.
