It is a very light gray color; however, it is not "almost white". If you are interested, I can take a picture tomorrow with a white car next to Thistle Gray (used in 1954 on painted bub caps and on the inner bars of most painted grills).

white card on the left - Thistle Gray on the right (sorry about the leaf and dirt)

This color was mixed by PPG in urethane enamel paint (DCC). This shade of gray is lighter than the Anvil Gray that was used on 1954 bumpers.

I have a question on '64 Fawn, or Desert Beige. The order sheet on my '64 called it out as Desert Beige but that color was discontinued in 1963. The same 528 color code became Fawn in 1964. None of the color panels Ive seen (AutoColorLibrary, etc.) match the tan color. Any one else run into this before?

Just about every piece on interior parts should be painted (except a few parts of the pedal assemblies, depending on the year).

What year are you referring to (you do not mention a year nor does your profile show a year)?
