Just to be pedantic, and to explain the GMC charts, GMC did not list their New Design (47-55) trucks by year. GMC listed them by series: Z series was 1954/55 New Design GMC.

I think these are 54/55 GMC exterior colors.

I'll see if I can find the PPG "off-set" color formulas for the two interior colors. They did computer color matches for us that were quite good. (another interior photo)

I had this posted in interiors a while ago and didn't get any reaction so I've deleted it and posting here. I had the heater fresh air panel scanned and custom paint mixed to match. I think it's a mighty fine looking colour for the interior! Can't wait to get it into the sunshine to see if it's got that grey/ brown/ colour that seems to be a great topic of discussion!
I used a little better than 1/2 gal of paint and sprayed 3 coats. The left over paint I'm going to get put into rattle can for touch up if it's not beyond it's shelf life.

My father owned a new 37 chevy pick up truck. It was blue on black. I am told the blue, which was a darker blue, is export blue. TCP global at tcgobal.com claims to have the original export blue. if you have followed stovebolt you will note I am looking for someone to give me a picture of a vehicle with the TCP export blue. I think the blue you are considering is a light blue. I bought a sample from Jim Carter of boatswain blue which is almost black. I dont think it was used unless it was a solid color. TCPs smallest container (for a sample) is a quart. I already bought Jim Carters boatswain and I have no use for this. If you find a vehicle painted export blue, please share a photograph with me. Please stay in touch. I would like for mine to look exactly as my dads the day he bought it.

Here are two shades of blue for 1934-46 Chevrolet Truck

During that time, Export Blue was a "fleet/commercial" color and Boatswain Blue was the non-fleet/non-commercial truck color (I might have them mixed up).

Here are examples of those colors: http://paintref.com/paintref/model/blue_ChevyTruck.shtml

Here are 1936 Chevrolet Truck color names.

Any one know where I can find the Canadian color 237 Airway Blue for a 1952 Chevy truck from the Canadian plant in Oshawa , it is a Dulux code DU-126. Can`t find anything that shows me the original color. ....Thanks

To add to this fray, I just went through a bit of a saga with my painter over the interior color for my 1950 Chevy 3100. His supplier could not match the PPG 27467 code to anything made today, and I tried a bunch of the other codes from this site and nothing came up.

So I bought a can of the Rustoleum 7272380 and we did a spray-out of it. I then went to the Sherwin Williams color chips and their color 45800 is pretty darn close. A bit lighter and more to the gray side than the brown side than the Rustoleum, but in the sunlight it was almost indistinguishable and I was tired of the trips to the body shop. The perfect being the enemy of the pretty darn good, I decided to go with it. Will post pics when done.

So there is another color code you guys can add to the quiver.

I am not sure if this was asked/answered already but I will give it a shot;
My paint code is 510AA. On the paint reference material,I have 510 is listed as both torquoise and torguosie poly.

Are they one in the same?
What does the AA mean?

Thanks,
Roger
