    Oddly, finding a paint & mixing code for my car "Bianca Neve" has been quite difficult; so much so that I thought I should start a separate thread on "vintage" paint.


    I think a thread dedicated to posting information on "vintage" Ferrari paints might be useful for those considering undertaking a restoration in the future.

    If you've repainted in an original paint colour; please post whatever info you can on year, paint code, manufacturer, & mixing code if possible.

    I suggest a post with specific information have the colour in the "title" line to make it easier for others to locate what they need.


    With help from Leigh at Redline, Brian Hoyt, Paul Baber, Kerry Chesbro of the 330GT Registry & others, I now have the info needed to buy the proper paint for my car.

    First a disclaimer: I don't claim to have any expertise in paint.
    - this is only a brief description of my personal experience.


    When I began the renewal of "Bianca Neve", my '64 330 2+2, I considered a number of colour options.

    With feedback from many, most notably Marcel Massini, Paul Baber, & Kerry Chesbro of the 330GT Registry, I decided to return the car to its original factory colour - "Grigio Argento"

    Since there wasn't enough of the original paint to "scan" for a match, it was time to do a bit of research.

    The 330GT Registry lists three different codes for Grigio Argento for this model.
    Grigio Argento 18940 MItalver
    Grigio Argento 20265 A Italver
    Grigio Argento 25090

    The Registry offers a wealth of usefull info on paint for 330 owners as well as some later cars: http://www.330gt.com/Encyclopedia/PaintColors.htm

    It appears that frequently the same colour had different codes and/or a different name depending on the paint manufacturer and year.

    Given the limited number of cars Ferrari built, the change in paint suppliers, and the fact that many of the firms involved changed hands or ceased operation, it can get a bit confusing!


    Grigio Argento 18940 M Italver
    Italver was an Italian paint manufacturer subsequently purchased by PPG
    Oddly enough, the only reference I found to this code was not PPG but Glasurit which is distributed (and owned?) by BASF.
    So, in the end it was pretty straightforward for me to purchase my colour, but Grigio Argento was pretty common for my car.

    I imagine a less common colour such as "Oro Chiaro" might present a greater challenge.

    Perhaps a member with a complete "colour chip" set might be prepared to have them scanned as a reference for mixing codes?

    Did you try searching here or other series forums? (I know it's weak.....)
    I swear there was another "paint thread" within the last year or so; it did include the list Wayne posted....and more important; I recall pix of color chip 'chains too....
    Am I dreaming?

    thanks James,

    yes, there have been other threads dealing with paint.
    my point in starting this one as "paint" is first to make it easier to find as a search, and secondly to hopefully provide more detailed information on how to use the colour code to find the "mixing code" for paints and companies that no longer exist.
    This is why I suggested using paint colours as "title"; to make colour searches easier.

    I'm hoping that this will be more of a technical resource than a discussion group.
    There have been huge changes in the world of paint since these cars were built.
    The advent of water based paints and "base/clearcoat" both present mixing and application issues.

    Current SOP is to scan the paint colour and derive a mixing code from there.
    This is not very useful when the nearest car that MIGHT have the proper colour you need is 1500 mi. away.
    Knowing the origin of the factory paint helped me track the paint code for my car through a series of companies to a useful "mixing code".

    cheers

    1 - chose the original Ferrari color you want. I assume you want some sort of white.

    2 - try to get an idea of what that particular color looks like - from photos or other cars painted that color. Or maybe from a hidden panel on your own car.

    3 - Start looking at every new car you can in the color (white) you have chosen. Try to identify a common car that has a white that is similar to the white you are looking for and that YOU LIKE.

    4 - paint your car that color. The huge advantage to this is you get a color you like and that is a known item - something that can be reprodcued if you need to do paintwork in the future.

    You will never get an accurate match to the original color. paints and pigments are completely different today than 50 years ago. COMPLETELY.

    No one can ever really challenge that your white is wrong because there really is no reference standard to the 'correct' white.

    For example - when I painted my 330 GTC: it was originally dark blue non-metallic (blue scuro if i recall). I chased my tail around for months tring to find someone that could really match that color - no luck. So, I just started looking at new cars and found a Porsche dark non-metallic blue that I liked and painted it that colr. No FCA judge ever questioned it.

    Do not laugh but here is an idea. There are hundreds of colors avilable in spray cans which can be found at discount and hardware stores.Some of these can be very close to identicle with some of the 'official' Ferrari colors.No you won't paint your car with spray cans. What you can do is to find a good paint body/paint shop. Then spray several fairly large metal sheets in different shapes with the spray can. This will give you and idea if the color is a match or close enough for your satisfaction. A good paint shop will have the equipment to exactly match the color on your metal sheets. An example is the giallo fly [fly yellow] 20-Y-191.There is a Rust-Oleum yellow that is in my opinion a very very near match to giallo fly. Now a plug for Boutiette"s Auto Body in Tewksbury Mass who perfectly matched the Rust -Oleum yellow color. Boutiette's also has a truly excelent fiberglass guy who reconstructed the entire front end of my friends kit car from two photographs and a schemetic. The final product is a truly excelent recreation. One other thought. If a car has a minor body issue that requires painting that will match the existing and older color on the car the same equipment at a good shop can be used to do this. tongascrew

    well in todays world of low voc paint (water base) you will have to manually match the colour with a good sample. Then spray out all the colours and choose the best example.

    I can vouch for that. I obtained a PPG code for Blu Tahiti for my Countach and had a sample prepared using water based paint. I also asked Gary Bobileff to spray a sample in original urethane. Totally different shade. I then went to see an original blue Jarama at the factory museum, no surprise, the urethane matched the original shade while the water based sample was not even close. Your best bet is to look for an original paint sample booklet, as above (or borrow one) before you start relying on the mixing codes.

    FWIW - I found that at both PPG and BASF there are two seperate mixing codes for my "grigio Argento"; one for water based and slightly different one for urethane.

    Glad you got it sorted.

    Ferrari of Houston mixes paint in house....I agree it's best to see a few samples before shooting the job, as Rocko says.

    I have been looking for paint colors for a 1954 Ferrari. There is a specific color I am interested in for a restoration of a 1949 Studibaker and the only way I can describe it is a greenish grey. Although a poor description, I cant imagine that there was that many colors out there in 1954. I saw this color on a restored 1954 Ferrari and the owner and the person that did the restoration told me this was the original color. They also refused to tell me the color, as it was a "One off color". Obviously its not if its an original color but they did not see it this way. Any help I would really appreciate it.

    quite surprised to see this thread back on page 1!

    Do you have ANY more info on what you're looking for? Owner? Serial number? Event?

    the only other thought would be to check Barchetta website and search Ferraris by serial number; you might see something there...

    I am hoping that by resurrecting this old thread I can get some help with a colour match.

    The original colour code for my 68 330GTC is 19278M, as in the heading of this post.

    The only (paper) charts I have seen do not show the colour accurately and I wonder if anyone could help with the name of the original supplier and if there is a modern day equivalent.

    Azzuro Hyperion (20.443.684/106.A,31) looks very similar - I think this was a PPG/Italver colour - but this seems from later models.

    Any help would be much appreciated.

    its probably there but you need to find a xref to your color. Ive wasted a year trying to find my color for my gt4. And btw be prepared for everyone to tell you how it would never be exact to original, because of bc/cc vs. lacquer, and that the paint chip cards will be off cause of what it is painted on etc. Post in your cars fchat section and see if someone has a color that was close. If you can get a scan off your car under door panels etc. Or see if you can get original paint chips. And yes the paint chips never are exact in person, and especially on a computer screen

    I suspect that in many recent restorations where the reproduced color isn't anywhere near the original, a scan was taken and nobody cared to notice that it was off by a mile.

    Neither is there any guarantee that a 50 year old paint sample matches how the car looked originally. We polished three samples of grigio fumo on my GTE and got three different colors. The fact that uv-light quickly destroys many pigments does not really implicate that the pigments would remain unaltered if protected from uv-light.

    One question. If vintage paint was made in oil base and today they are all in water base du to the restrictions of contamination, how can expect to have the same thing?
