Recovered from the Wayback Machine

DARKSIDE

1963 Late season/1964 Fireball Roberts Galaxies:

Ford Motor Company 1955 Regency Purple with a "clear" Pearl overcoat.

1962 Wood Bros. Galaxie: FoMoCo Rangoon Red

1963 " " " early/mid season: Bright White top of car, FMC Rangoon Red bottom.

Junior Johnson 1965-1966 Galaxies and 1966-1967 Fairlanes: FMC Springtime Yellow (1965 color, IIRC)

1959-1962 H/M "white" Fords: FMC Corinthian/Wimbledon White.

1960 Banjo Matthews #94 Starliner: FMC Corinthian White (can use Wimbledon White)

1963 Ned Jarrett Galaxie from the Southern 500 on: True Blue Pearl all over for short track car; Wimbledon White roof over Blue Pearl for Speedway car.

1965 Fred Lorenzen Galaxie: FMC Wimbledon White. (1958 Chev. Cashmere Blue was used when the interior was painted light blue)

1969 Richard Petty Torinos/Talladegas: FMC Grabber Blue

1966 Jim Paschal #14 Friedkin North Wilkeboro Winner: Duplicolor Victory Red

1963 Tiny Lund Southern 500 H/M Galaxie: House Of Kolors Tangerine Pearl over a metallic gold base.

1963 (Southern 500 on)-1964-1965 Wood Bros. Galaxies, 1968 Dan Gurney Cyclone (Red #121): Duplicolor Medium Red Pearl over a metallic gold base. HOK Shimrins "Apple Red" top coat. The Wood Bros. actually used a three step process!

1969-on K&K Chargers/Daytonas: FMC 1965 Mustang Poppy Red.

!965-1974 Banjo Matthews red cars: FMC 1965
Mustang Poppy Red.

1967 David Pearson/Jimmy Clark Fairlanes: FMC 1966 Emberglow.

1969 John Sears Coronet: Mopar Panther Pink

Petty Blue:
Pre 1972: MM Grabber Blue

For the Stroppe '57 and '63-'64 Mercurys, the colors are:

'57 Mercury Persimmon for the reddish part
'57 Mercury Pacific Blue Poly for the blue
'57 Mercury Classic White (I think this is the same color as Ford Corinthian White) for the white.

Testors Purple is actually a lavender color and is perfect for the early 63 Fireball Roberts car.

GREYSIDE


Petty Blue:
1973-P: Tamiya Lt. Blue


CURRENT

#8 Bud Chevy………. Duplicolor Bright Red
ts-8 pre 2003 bud red.

#15 NAPA Michael Waltrip's……….True Blue Pearl (52906) in the Testors Colors By Boyd line

#17 DeWalt Ford of Matt Kenseth ……….Tamiya Camel Yellow

#24 Dupont Jeff Gordon Blue………. Tamiya Metallic Blue

#38 M&M's car of Elliott Sadler ……….Tamiya Chrome Yellow

#48/5 Blue: Tamiya Mica Blue

Kodak/DeWalt/CAT Yellow: Tamiya Camel Yellow

Pennzoil Yellow: Tamiya Chrome Yellow with Pearl Clear top coat.

Tamiya Brilliant Blue is accurate for the 1997 Kyle Petty car and USG Sheetrock cars.

Testors Dark Blue is very close, but not 100% perfect, for the AC Delco cars. All of them, I think, but possibly not Dale Earnhardt's Japan car.

Tamiya Purple is accurate for the #37 Kmart cars.

Tamiya Orange, TS12 IIRC, is perfect for the Home Depot cars.

tamiya ts-49 #9/19/8 cars

tamiya tp-24(rc paint) modern tide orange.

cobra colors verde miura-#9 dew green

cobra colors gomango orange-#9 charger.com

ts-31tamiya bright orange-#20home depot and #38 deka batteries

ts-51-miller met blue.

micca blue from tamiya- #5/48/97/26

Coors Light Silver cars are matched perfectly with Model Master LACQUER Sterling Silver

Heilig Meyers Teal is matched by Model Master Lacquer Tropical Turquoise

There was lots of "I like this better than that" but take the chart for what it is...

Good list but, grabber blue is NOT a good representation of Petty blue, nor did the color change over the years. Closest matches are :Automotive Dodge Super Blue, Testors light bright blue and Tamiya ts-23.

I used Rustoleum oasis blue with Krylon gloss clear on my 1989 Petty ride. Took one of my 1:64 scale cars to the store in order to match the color.

Does anyone have a suggestion to come as close as possible with a readily available spray can for the red on Wendell Scott’s Torino?



Thank you in advance!!

Several colors are available that will get you really close, depending on your preference. Starting with automotive, any body/paint shop should be able to mix you 1972 Plymouth Basin Street Blue or 1973 Dodge Super Blue in either lacquer or acrylic enamel. These colors are the same and are just a hair off of Petty blue. There's Tamiya TS-23 blue, Testor's light bright blue as well as a number of aftermarket companies like Model Car World finishes owned by an old friend of mine in Massilon Ohio. You won't be disappointed in his service or his paints.

Cheers and good luck. Smile

Krylon makes a nice Poppy Red for the K & K Chargers that i found at Wal Mart, large cans for half the price of the smaller Testors or Tamiya cans.

Also a Rust-Oleum custom premium lacquer paint in Gloss Neon Green for Mello Yello cars that i picked up at Advance Auto Parts.

I don't have any examples, but Duplicolor touch-up paint will have some good colors.

Like Bright Red (Ford color) for your Torino build
