Tinbasher,
Assuming you are inquiring about the colors of my 190A, they are not authentic Ford colors. The story is that it was my plan to do an authentic restoration of my 190A, and paint it Chicle & Copra Drabs. However, there are no paint formulas for the authentic Chicle & Copra Drab colors. I was unable to find an owner of an original car with these colors who would go through the trouble of having a paint dealer photo them. So I chose colors that are period correct for other brands of cars. My 190A was originally Ford Maroon & Black with a Vermilion Red pin stripe & Vermilion Red Wheels.

IMHO, Victoria's are THE most beautiful 'A's... Congrats on a fine paint combo.
