    Does anyone have a paint chip of the Glidden Salchi used in 1962 by Pininfarina called Bianco Salchi 254416 or Bianco Salchi 173 PF?
    Thanks a lot to everyone will be able to give me any suggestion.

    I think the correct code is 25441 with suffix S.

    Assume you talk about chassis #3803 GT which was Bianco Pertito 254416 PF 173 Salchi?

    3803 GT is the only one originally painted that color.

    Besides that, I think "pertito" should be perlato. Old Italian hand-writing can be a little tricky to read at times and mistakes are particularly common with colors that are not repeated over and over again. A customer wanting a special effect would also perfectly explain why they fetched a can of paint they never seem to have used on another production car and also documented it in their own selection of special colors (PF173). I also think the suffix S stands for physically curing paint, majority of old paints cured chemically (i.e. by drying). Will check my hand-written copies of original documents as soon as I find them.

    This is not an original document. It is a copy including many silly mistakes.

    Nice provocation indeed. Love it.
    So you are saying this is not coming from Carrozzeria Pininfarina in Torino, not "original" (in what sense?) and "includes many silly mistakes"?
    Why then does Ferrari in Maranello use exactly this ledger, please?
    And why did Fredi Valentini at Carrozzeria Pininfarina hand out this document personally?

    Don't put words into my mouth. The quality of the data is terrible as you most certainly can see for yourself. Just wanted to help original poster and am not going to get into a silly pissing contest here.

    Thank you Marcel, but i'm reading PARTITA in Italian. Which means nothing by the way....
    The problem is still: how this chip looks like?

    I agree with partita (not pertita). My typo in post #3, sorry for fat fingers.

    No problem, i think the suggestion kare made might be interesting. In any case this is a special color.
