The problem I see is that there are cars painted in colors that the painter believed were Model A colors and may not actually match the colors used in the day. As an example my 1930 Town Sedan's Kewanee and Elkpoint are actually lighter than the "true" color.

No problem at all, may be a good fact to find the accurate color sample!!

I agree with Mike, my Deluxe Coupe is supposed to be chicle and copra drab but these colors are also way off....

Nice color combo Mitch. I bought mine last year and it was painted by a previous owner back in '87. Upper body color of maroon is the same as lower which I think is not right. I believe the wheels are vermillion red. Still no pinstripe.
