Default paint Colors

Hello. I am a bit new to the Model A and especially the paint colors. I have attached a picture of my 1930 Tudor. As you can see it is two tone. I believe the body is color is "Chicle" and the upper is Cupra Drab. This what "I think". Can anyone confirm these colors and advise either the Dupont or PPG paint codes?

I think my car has a fairly common paint scheme and these are FORD colors.

Please help. I need some touch up paint.

Thanks

Bill

Chickle and Copra Drab looks about right to me. My fav colour combo!

It may be my monitor but it looks like it may be Kewanee Green and Elkpoint Green...

This car looks like it is Chickle/Copra Drab, BUT it does not matter for the purpose of getting some touch up paint. There is no official "book" that one can go to and get some codes or secret formula to exactly match the paint that is on YOUR car.

You need to have a paint shop scan your car and match to it. Then spray a small test panel and compare it yourself to the car in outdoor light. If the paint's not quite a match, they can tweak the mix to match better.

It may never be a perfect match.
