1932 Auburn Speedster Paint Code


Recommended Posts

Trying to find the paint code for the green of the 1932 Auburn speedster in the picture.  Looked at my old paint books and cant come up with a number. Could this be a custom color? Picture is form the net and don't know who to credit for it..

I had the car in an Estate slash Bankruptcy.   It is not a factory color and I do not recall who restored the car (in the 80's I believe) to send you to them (my guess is Fran Roxas, who has now retired); and my second best guess would be  possible touch up via RM restorations.   If I recall the car does have clearcoat on it - it did have that clearcoat "plastic" look to the car.  I can tell you the pinstriper touched it up I think straight from a can of on-shot sign painters enamel - I do not recall them doing a custom mix.  There are a lot of photos on the internet and I believe you chose one more intense than it is in actual standing by it in person (albeit still an intense color).
