Default Color question - light winterleaf or not?

Good day / evening all.

I am sending my 1932 Geelong (Australia) built Phaeton out to paint this week and need to provide the painter a PPG code.

The color I have in mind is the same as the color attached - which is a recent South American build.

I have had a good look at the 1932 color range and the Light Winterleaf Beige seems much darker than the car pictured?

Does anybody have a guestimate as to what the color pictured may be?

Thanks in advance
Adam

The phaeton in your photos is a pretty good match for the original '32 color, Winterleaf brown-light, but a tad on the bland side. The moldings should be painted Winterleaf brown-dark as original to make a fair comparison of the total effect. Attached are photos of two examples I have which have a bit more life to the light color as did the original. Recognizing of course that the variables that affect the appearance of colors in photos are almost endless.

Dont know if this helps but here is a thread about '32 colors. I believe it mentions a light and a dark winterleaf.
