Early Durant car colors

Got a question for everyone. Does anybody have any information on what colors the early Durants and Stars were painted prior to 1928. I posted the chart for the 1928 colors and we have good documentation on the colors after 1929, but what about the earlier cars. I know that black was common of course, and I've seen many restored A-22's in red for some reason and I know of one Blue A-22 that appears to be the original color, but what about other choices? Frank does your Star appear to be the original color (blue/green)? It would be interesting to find out what was offered prior to 1928.

This is the colors that Terry has listed for the 1923 A-22 (Durant Catalogue)
I'm thinking there are a couple of greens with the later A-22s

(Sport Models): Maroon, Mottled Maroon, Dark Blue, Radio Blue,Mt. Hope Grey, Military Tan

Hi Mike......

My 1927 Star sedan has some of the original paint showing where some of an old repaint has flaked off. It is a blue / green.

Some of my other cars have original paint but it is too weathered to be of any use for color matching.

I have color charts and some chips but they are for 1930 & up.

See you in Charleston......
