Brewster green?

Is this an example of "Brewster Green". You see so many colors out there on trucks how's a guy supposed to know what the names of the original colors actually look like? Would this be an example of Brewster Green? If anybody else can share pictures of what they know to be pretty close to the original colors of their art deco trucks I would appreciate it. It think it will make it much easier when deciding what color to go with for myself and others who may be restoring to original.
Don't know who owns this truck or even where I got the picture but it looks beautiful!

Thanks!

Thanks
Tim

The page won't open for me....
Whatever you do, don't go by the color you see on your computer monitor...BIG differences. I think you have to see the sample color you like in natural sunlight to get a good idea.

The current PPG code for Brewster Green is 43645. It will cost you some to get a small amount made up, but at least you will know exactly what it looks like!

I will second RussNtussin. I used to mix automotive paint. I even took some classes on mixing and Tinting paint. Lighting can make all the difference. If you think I am joking go to on of your supermarkets that uses the Orange Lights for their parking lot. Just walk around and look at the cars you will soon see one that has had some body work done. Under these gas Lights (orange) you can easily spot mis matched paint jobs but in the sun you may be hard pressed to see them at all. One of the best examples of this was at the DuPont Paint Class. They pulled out this 2'X 2' piece of metal that was painted one color. Then they placed a large divider over the piece of metal that divided this example into 4 triangles. Then they lite each section with a different type of lighting. Such as incondesent, Flourecent, Hallogen and an artifical sunlight. Well that piece that was one color turned into 4 totally diffent colors.

So good luck

That link is inoperative.

Brewster Green is a dark green, almost black looking in certain lights.

I have matched it at my local paint shop, but do not have a PPG number for it.

Brian, are you sure on that number?

Maybe take the PPG number to a DuPont dealer and get it cross-referenced?
Kook, that number came from Bob Adler, I assume it is correct, he calls it brewster green medium. But no other brewster greens are listed.

here's a pretty cool website that might help. It's still not the same, looking at color chips on a computer. But it's fun to check out.

The chip page is exactally what I am looking for a a basic guide to help get me started. I visited the chem stripper in my area today and I'm getting pretty pumped up now about getting close to picking a color.

The modern offset number for Brewster Green I got from PPG in '97 is 43835. (similar to Brian's number, his has a 6 in the middle, mine an 8 ?) Add the appropriate prefix to that number for the kind of paint you are using. I think John had posted all the modern color offsets somewhere in the tech. info. here when I had gotten them.

Can anyone tell me if Brewster Green was a color available in '54 on a 6400? My dad remembers ordering a '54 semi tractor (6400) in Brewster Green. "Old Earl" is my 54 6400 project and I'd like to try this green if it is appropriate. Mainly 'cause that is the green Dad remembers. I'm impressed that he remembers a color of a truck that he ordered (one of several dozen - no doubt) for a feed mill 50 years ago.

You will have to cut and paste this link to make it work. If you just click on it you will get an error message.

John,

Chevrolet documents do not list Brewster Green as a factory option color for 1954 trucks or Sedan Delivery.

The "standard" color in 1954 was Juniper Green (DuPont Dulux 93-72001) and it is the closest 1954 green (In apprearance) to Brewster Green. Look at Ralphy's posting in this forum (1951-1954 Truck Colors Plus).

I have found PPG to be better in having "recipes" for older colors.
