Hi all,

I would like to paint my 58 in the exact same color as the car in this link.

Thanks

The closest that i have to that color on my 1958 Buick color chart is Garnet Red Metallic, which to me looks copper, not red. The order and code number from the paint cart is: 2475-H 202-90639-H You might want to send the person who posted the photo to see if he owns the car. If so, he'll know for sure if it is a 1958 Buick color or a custom color.
1958 Buick Limited Riviera Coupe Model 755

Other cars:
1953 Chevrolet 3100 Pickup
1957 Pontiac Transcontinental Safari
1968 Ford Galaxie 500 HT
1977 Lincoln Continental Convertible

Thanks for your input.

The color in the photo seems to be different to the original copper color.

The photo had been posted by someone who saw the car at some event so he doesnt have any contact details of the owner sadly.
