Is there a modern number for the stock interior color for my 55.1 3100 ? The old code I'm finding is for Pearl Beige PPG 21122 or Dupont 93-72389 . I can't find a chip to compare against so are these still good numbers ? I'm terrible with colors, was Pearl Beige the common color for that year ? It appears more light tan/brown to my eye.

Can you clean up one of the lower seat frame covers and bring it to your auto paint store? They have many color matching cards. That's what I did. Yours looks lighter. My '54 was more brownish like your dash. Not sure why your dash is different.


54 Chevy 3100 Deluxe 3 speed on column. Keeping original as possible.

the dash has a light coat of surface rust on it, the door jamb and lower door are better examples of the stock color.

Check the inside glovebox door for a possible sample area.

I see posts going back to 2003 but I haven't seen successful side-by-side comparison pictures of what was used.
Either it's a trade secret or in the long run anything close is good enough.
