I need to paint my 1954 half ton truck. Inside the forum I found the following color codes:

COLOR NAME
Juniper Green DUP 93-72001
Engine Gray (235) DUP ??
Pearl Beige DUP 93-72389
Pulsay Gray DUP 93-72130

Nobody in Mexico can use those. Does anybody have "modern" Dupont color codes, which match these (as close as possible)? Thanks

Hello

Does anyone know the correct PPG code for the interior on a 1951 GMC 1 ton?
I too haven't had much luck finding codes.
the guide on this site says it is Pecan brown (20930), but my PPG rep cant use the code, for some reason. my rep contacted ppg's library and they are producing a formula from their archives. they described the color as "chocolaty", Does that sound right?? the original paint we have is a gray brown, but probably very faded... most of the parts suppliers claim that their "champaign" is correct for chevy and gmc's...???

any help would be greatly appreciated...

I dont know if this helps but I have a book on old chevy's and the "PER-MAX Chevrolet Commercial colors (1939-1951)" Shows only one brown color and its "Sun Beige" 2U801

Here is the chart for that specific color. I guess its what mix PER-MAX uses or used. hopefully this helps.



Parts/ Base/ Colors/ Counter setting
100 TE-02 H. H. Mix 100
568 TE-91 White 668
178 TE-74 Ferrite Yellow 846
108 TE-81 Burnt Sienna 954
46 TE-41 Lamp Black 1000

I'm in Mass too w/ a 1948 Thriftmaster. The original paint seems to be Windsor blue. Last owner re-did the ext to black and kept the int "Champaign" (I'm uncertain of the technical name for this color). With that, behind the seat still has a dark red primer with champaign overspray. Is this your situation?
