I'm building a '57 Sporty clone with my '59 engine. I want to paint it the gold and white the '57 Sportster HD has in the museum. I believe this was actually a rare '58 color?? And help would be appreciated.
They can mix the paint for you in either acrylic enamel or lacquer, or they can sell you a color chip which you can take to any automotive paint store that offers computer color matching and have the paint mixed there.
Definitely going to have the formula converted to a BC/CC deal. I do that a lot, so no worry there.I figured the white was Birch White . . more common. No ?? I had someone else tell me it was probably a fleet color they used, but didn't know which one for sure. Not many golds were done in the 50s on cars and trucks. I found a '56 or '57 Cadillac gold and of course my '68 Mustang is gold But not many choices. Thanks for your comments.
Maybe give the Wheels Through Time museum in NC a call. I know the owner has an original HD paint chip Rolodex and he may have had it matched at one time...or not. They do a lot of builds there and I think one of the employees is the painter for the museum. Might be worth a try.
