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.
