Decrypting my 1955 Century cowl tag.

Recommended Posts

This is cowl tag. And this is how car looks like today. Probably it was repainted more than one time during its life.

Can please somebody show me such color combination on the photos?

1955 Buick site tells that its Mist Green, Condor Yellow, Condor Yellow

Buick Hometown does not list such color like Mist Green. What is this?

Yellow paint is present underneath the carpets, that true.

 

Also, please can anybody help me with trim no 463 picture?
