I have seen a lot of models of 48's in a sort of blueish-green color, but never seen a real on in that color....was it a factory color, or just something the model companies used.

The color is hard to describe, hence "blueish-green" It is sort of a dark teal

I have a model in that color and was going to get my paint guy to color match it, but a factory code or PPG code might help.....although he reckons color matching it would be easier.

I can't believe how difficult it is to keep typing the American spelling of color ..... we use colour here in Australia. I keep typing the correct spelling and then having to correct myself

OK John, I'll use Andrew from now on.

Andrew:

Good - glad they are all truck colors. If you can post the rest of the 57-60 colors, codes, and years that would be great. That would give me everything I need to finish the whole 48-60 truck paint code table.

Mark:

I'd bet it's the infamous Meadow Green. I haven't gotten to the paint chips in the reference chart yet - but there's a sample of Meadow Green near the bottom of page 15 of Earl's World. Check and see if it looks like your color.

Chris:

You found another one of those idiosyncrasies that make the common language of Britian, Australia, and the US so difficult to manage.

I followed the link from your page to the autocolor site and I think Strata Blue is the closest to the color on the model I have, but doesn't have the greenish tinge the model has.

I THINK I am in the situation where I have a mental picture of my truck in the color of a model, which is a non-Ford color
Just as well I'm a dark sider I will get it color matched and get on with it

Mark

PS I forgot to mention I am getting a flattening agent put in it because I want that sort of look

George, I painting the truck white so the original color is of no importance to me but it could help another canadian. A neat thing being canadian we can spell american or british and not be wrong. Labor - Labour, pronounciation of schedule and several others.

OK, got more stuff filled in - but I need some help from the FRIDGE crowd. Specifically, the 1957 and 1958 colors and codes.

As you can see from the expanded chart below, I'm still missing some Ford part numbers for several colors in these years including Dark Blue, Starmist Blue, and Willow Green. I'd also appreciate it if you folks could check the other 1957-1959 color information. I had the least amount of reliable information for those years.

I'm waiting for the '58 Ford Truck Paint Chart I found to arrive.
So as soon as I get it I'll post them to you.
Still need the Same for the M-100/250/350's of those years though, any of you in The Great White North have them?

Color Codes

Thanks for posting the link for the 1953 Ford F100 paint colors. Its a great help, and saves me from trying to locate a paint chip chart to compare. My 53 is code G, and the inside of the cab still has original paint. I plan on keeping mine all stock, since it has never been butchered by a past owner. Im still running a 239 V8 Flathead, and a 3 on the tree.....

Color Chips on your Computers Monitor

FYI-this is a follow up to my last posting regarding the color chips. The Color Chips on your Computers Monitor will appear pretty close if your using a older style big monitor, but on my laptops LCD, my light green color chip now appears as blue. 1953 G Seafoam Green. it is a very light green....

Earl, I was looking back at some old posts on Ford colors and I am stumped that no one has come up with the color of the engine and transmissions. A few suggestions have come my way on the engine 'green' but no one seems to know if the transmission/bellhousing were the same color or some other color........I have heard thath te standard 3 speed (side loaders) were painted red, some say black.......do you have any definitive thoughts on this/
