Paint color

Anybody know which of the four greens offered in 1929 is a green/blue (it is more green than blue). I sure would like to put a name to it. Also what is the best modern substitute to match for touchups, laquer, enamel,..?? Thanks

Re: Paint color

If you go to www.autocolorlibrary.com and then look up Vintage vehicles and then go to first auto color codes you'll probably find the colors you are looking for. Unfortunately there is no quick lookup so you have to browse the colors. I found my Ambatta Green there which was a standard sedan color for 1928. You can also order the paint from them. As far as matching the paint up, that might be hard. First they used lacquer paint back then and with age the color can change. So even if you ordered a quart of the color listed it might come out different.
