You forgot 'BambinoBlue'. Very similarly spelled. And probably has a different 'M" number. Nothing like 'NavyBlue' or 'HillStreetBlue' both of which can easily pass as one of the two WashingtonBlues. Jack E/NJ

Sorry, but I've never run across "Bambino" blue. Can you please point me toward some reference to it and learn me somethin'? DD

Same. Bambino blue is that a chevy iroc color?


28-36 blues. Accent and full color that I am sure of. Sure they carried on with some colors later. just a thumb for the pre 37 cars


Chelsea blue - 1929
Andalusite blue - 1928-29,30
Duchese blue - 1928-29
Gunmetal Blue - 1928
Niagra Blue - 1928-29
Lombard blue - 1931
Riviera blue - 1931
Washington blue - 1931-32, 36
Duncan blue - 1933
Dearborn blue - 1934-35


Blues


Probably 1950-60s the same ppg/Ditzler chip chart as Floyd had/has.

This is a scan so chips are subject to rgb/cymk and printer changes. Certainly not a color reference. Chips are lighter then the scan.

Jefferson Blue was the name for 1939.
That 39 deluxe coupe colour seems to my tired old eyes to be fairly close for 1939.
I remember seeing original 37/38 cars back in the 60's ands 70's still with their original paint and it seemed that Washington Blue was quite a bit darker than the 1939 shade.
Down here in NZ some Toyota Hiace vans seem to be pretty close to Jefferson Blue.

Jefferson Blue is quite dark. And, in my opinion, Lyon blue is even darker.
Here's a few of my projects. Guys that know me, know I go to great lengths to achieve absolute correctness.
The '40s are all Lyon Blue. The '39s are all Jefferson Blue. The '36 is Washington Blue.
I tried to show just how much difference lighting can make. Note the '39 in the garage vs. the one in the drive.

With due respect, the '38 Washington (M1747) and the '39 Jefferson (M1775) were two different colors.

Kube...Along with everything else that you seem to do, do you also raise Christmas trees? Pretty decent-looking roadster, by the way! DD

This doesn't confuse the issue as it has nothing to do with the subject posed.

As the original poster asked about a 36. I agree it was covered. But it's still up in the air the actual color really sorta or the modern paint code. I'd say your 36 is as close as it gets. My 36 has spots that are original like the spare tire shroud. Never repainted. As close as that with a bit more wear.

I wanted a dark blue and found ISUSU Cavalier Blue 1988 . I like it no purple hue almost black in the shade. It's a full acrylic enamel. I have seen many versions of Washington Blue.
On stands for transmission change.

Not even close. Get an authentic paint chip.

Paint chips will typically get a guy close. The problem with paint chips is most darken with age - regardless of how they had been stored.
I have found it best, when possible, to uncover areas that have not seen weather or the light of day since new.
