The discussion of whether or not the '49 3100 came in forester green got me doing a lot of Googling.

These links show forester being a stock color. So I'm pretty sure that's correct

@Builder do you have a link to the Juniper green color those codes make?

I know pretty much nothing on paint; the place painting my truck says if I get them the code they'll get the paint. So I provided them with the PPG code and when they provided me a sample, I told them to stop because I thought it was too kelly green.

Has anyone used this paint from Jim Carter?

Attached are pictures of the truck I matched it to and the paint that I had made up many years ago. This is just acrylic enamel, but you can clear over it if you get the right guy and do it. Of course new paints are better.

many times the color "name" is the same color use for other brands of cars too.

This is exactly what I am looking for:

This is what ppg 40519 looks like:

Any ideas?
Btw I looked & searched all over this site looking for different color codes with no luck.

Appreciate any insight and assistance.

I know this post is old but I may have some useful info for others. The truck in that article “retired nurses....” is not seacrest green or forest green. The color is actually an Austin color, 1958 GN13. I liked the color so I inquired with the owner.


1950 (I think) Chevy 3100
