1963 Willys Paint codes into modern colors

I have decided to paint my jeep the original colors when i get to that point. i am looking for Transport yellow and sierra blue. I have the CJ3B page, but i need to know what to mix to get these colors, or what the color will match.
Thanks

Dan, I can not help you with the amounts of each color to mix, but I know you can take the color down to Lowe's or Home Depot and they have a computer 'eye' that reads the color from the paper it is on and the computer will mix the color for you.
I don't know if they have any auto quality paint there, but I can almost bet you that an auto paint dealer can do the very same thing.
Hope this helps you out.

I will have to try and get a good printout of the color. i saved it and it was low quality. I printed it and it came out worse. i just saw a sweet willys with the yellow and i think that will be my color.

Re: 1963 Willys Paint codes into modern colors

I am not sure I understand the question, but I will give a shot at answearing it. You said you want to use origanal colors. Most auto body paint supply shop have color chip books that go back to the 50's, well at least we dowhere I work. Pick the color you want, and the paint man will mix it for you, You can probably get it mix in anything, from old technology Laquer ( YUCK ), to the most modern basecoat/ clearcoat systems. We also have an item called "the paint prophet". It takes a picture of the paint, if you have a big enough sample, and give you a formula to mix. It work allright, but will not give a perfect match, good for overall finishing, or blending, but not good if you want to match one panel to another one. A big problem is finding an auto body supply that will help walk in customers, many will only deal with shops.

Thanks, Ray

Dan:

A good auto paint store can fix you up with what you want. I have a Martin Senour Paints chart for '61-'67 Willys Jeep. I've never heard of this brand before getting this chart, but with these #'s you should be able to get the right colors. The 1958-64 Transport Yellow is 32Y-7602 (Acrylic), 90T-3867 (Synthol). The 1962-64 Sierra Blue is 32Y-7742 (Acrylic), 90T-4098 (Synthol).
