Hello everyone!

I am restoring a 1930 Desoto Roadster and the body of my car is painted colored board.

Someone can help me with the code of this color?

Step a photo of a similar car.

Thank you very much for the help!

Cachorro states that the picture is of a "similar car". It is not a model K since the 1929 K did not come with an 8 cyl and had a different hood louver pattern, it is not a 1930 CK or CF since they had a wide profile radiator. My pick is a 1930 Chrysler 66 roadster. Hubcaps appear to be Chrysler as well

¡Hola todos! lo siento por no responder al tema ... no sé por qué no consiguen avisos responden a mi caja ?? Tengo un problema.

El tema del color y resolverlo! muchas gracias a todos.

Miro hacia abajo consulto si mi modelo es K o CK y realmente no lo sé? ... ¿Qué debo hacer para saber?

El motor es de 6 cilindros.

Judging by the exhaust manifold, the water inlet on the head, and the front motor mounts, you definitely have a model K

thank you very much for your help Ckowner!!

Hi, Your motor serial number on the right front side of the block, will start with a K for model K cars. It's stamped on a raised pad near the headgasket seam.


Only two body colors were availiable on K roadster.  One is your color, which I think was "motor car red" but not sure after all these years.


The other color was "cigarette" which is a yellow with a bit of tan hues.



I would think that TPCglobal in California has the color names and formulas, and could mix the paint.

Thank you very much for your reply and for your help!

I've decided to paint color board (wine).
