Hello all,
On the door plate of my 57 Chevy truck for the paint it says:
TRIM: STD
PAINT: 764 (What color is this?)
I am also trying to verify what I was told about the white on the truck. The hubcaps, grill, headlight rings and roof are all white. I was told they are Bombay Ivory white color. "The Dupont paint number for this color is 93-72961, and the Ditzler number is 80756." Is this a true factory color for my truck?
Thank you for the help gang!!
Jon

my book sez 764 = Brewster Green - the trim in the TF years is 'Arctic Beige', off white toward gray .... Bombay Ivory was the "2nd color" used with 2 tones, off white toward brown, not used on trim .... the number you have for the Bombay Ivory is the original Duco laquer #, you'll have a hard time translating that to a modern #

764 is Brewster Green (Ditzler 42101)

The Dupont & PPG (Ditzler) codes you have for Bombay Ivory are correct.

PPG should be able to find a formula to match Bombay Ivory - check the instructions on how to contact the PPG Color Library, at the bottom of this Tech-Tip

Here is a photo of how the frame looks this week. I bought the brewster green and bombay ivory today. We hope to start painting parts next week.
