Default 1931 commercial color list

I am getting ready to paint a 1931 Wide Bed Pickup for a friend. He wants to paint it a STANDARD factory color but is having trouble finding a list of the colors that were available from the factory. I know that special orders could be ordered but he only wants what was readily available from the factory. I found a post that said there were 38 commercial colors available in 1931. Could this be correct? Thanks again for all the help. Don

Default Re: 1931 commercial color list

Commercial vehicles were restricted to only one standard color, Rock Moss Green upper with Black lower. In Sept 1930 Phoenix Brown, Menelaus Orange, Rubellite Red, Pegex Orange, And Blue Rock Green became available. In June 1931 any Standard color could be ordered. Colors for Deluxe vehicles were not available. So to be correct you need to determine the month of the build. The serial number will determine the month.
When in doubt refer to the club's Judging Standards & Restoration Guidelines.
