Steve - all the trim on your 58 should be white if it's not chrome, if the front one is chrome, the back one should also be chrome .... both bumpers, the grill, headlight doors, hubcaps and the tailgate lettering were "Artic Beige", an off-white .... if you're concerned with use wear, powder coat it

My 51 Chev 3100 has two bolt holes in the exterior of each rear fender right above the rear wheels. Have seen trucks of the same vintage with a fender support in that area that runs up to the top of the fender and I suppose that bolts to the bed.
Anyone have a source for those parts?
Thanks,
Tex Chev 51

Can anyone tell me the color used on the interior of my '57 panel? Looks like some kind of grey.

it is 'some kind of gray' Kojack, the lighter one was called Marble Gray and the darker [dash top, column, and floor] was called Charcoal - don't know of any modern formulas to match

Thanks Squeeze, I was afraid of that. I just took off one of the small inspection covers and it looks like it leans towards the beige side of grey when compared to the aerosol can light grey I have. Tractor Supply has "Ford Grey" enamel for tractor restoration which may be a good match. I'll take the cover with me tomorrow and check more closely. The fire department had painted the dash black and red and the rest of the interior white.

any help would be greatly appreciated...



I have a '52 chevy 3800 and the interior color looks to be 'sun beige.'

OK, the Tractor Supply (Valspar) Ford Grey paint is the closest match I've found yet, I'm going with it. It comes in aerosol or quarts which will be pretty convenient.

I went to my local PPG dealer to order up some "artic beige" but the fellow couldn't find the formula in PPG. Based on an internet search, I thought it might be "8290" but he said that is a bright white, which doesn't sound right to me. The 8290 also seems to be a "cameo white" but I wouldn't expect that to be a bright white.

Anyone know the PPG # for artic beige?


Thanks,
Steve
