Arrow '33 tire cover outer band

Scored ($60) a '33 tire cover outer band at a swap last Fri.Most anything for these '30's Ford's here are tough to find here in Europe. Removed the stainless (which was riveted on)to take the dings out and polish it.Lo and behold the original green under the stainless.I wonder how that shade of green compares to the USA '33's.My '33 tudor was missing the orig spare cover.The French owners manual turned up just before the meet.A little beat up but glad to have it.

Hello to southern france. As you might remember, my 33 (identified by David R. as VERY late 33, with some 34 features, and a Canadian built RHD) was originally green.
Since the green on my car did not match 'vineyard' green, David said the 33 green was (is) darker, same as used on 32 (I think that's what he said.)
I'd say that the shade of green you show is much lighter, and the green on my 33 is VERY dark.
Obviously, just opinion. Bob


(Edit... Didn't your car come from the usa? I think I learned, somewhere along the way, that usa tire covers are quite different from rhd covers? I'm guessing that you have shown a European cover?)
(I collected multiple owners manuals. There seem to be multiple variations. One that I have is copyright 1933, and it says "Ford Motor Company" on the bottom of the front cover, where yours says "Ford SAF xxxx". Mine also says "112 Inch Wheelbase", where yours says "Model V8-40".)

If the origin of the car that the band came off was Ford of France, the color choices were not the same as in the U.S., even though the body was of North American origin.
