Here's what I have in my data base. Some of these are old codes, but perhaps your local paint store can either mix from them or cross reference them. Let me know what you find out, and if they cross over to a new code.

ALMOND GREEN 61-72 GREEN GN-37 BLVC-514 LUCITE 8195LH DULUX 96233H DUPONT F2075 GLASURIT AST602 DITZLER/PPG 43058 R&M BM076 SHERWIN WILLIAMS D5-8415 00(A)

Thanks very much, glad a Gallon would do it, and as it happens Sherwin is about 3 miles from my house. I thought they just did household paint.

Will pop in and ask at the weekend.

PPG and Sherwin Williams have full automotive paint centers. + retail  Stores
   they are Actual paint supply stores you can visit and order anything.

     Google either of those companies close to your location for a paint store you can visit.


 From my memory  - 1 gallon color  is enough to do a whole mini Inside + Outside

I have had good luck with these guys:

You just choose the era.   I entered 1965, choose AHMG and saw Almond Green.      I painted a couple of cars with paint from them.    I used single stage urethane.

Restoration Mini has a long thread on paint codes.

This is his source for samples, look under BLMC

You have already tried calling your local automotive paint suppliers to see if they mix custom colors? Most shops can mix any custom color you need if you bring a sample in. If they've been around a long, long time they might even have paint chip books dating back to the 60's and possibly formulas for mixing them. But for sure they can do custom colors, as they do for people who need paint matches for repair work.

I am after enough 2k GN37 Almond green paint for a full respray

I can only find touch up paint available in the US.

How much will I need and does anyone have a reputable source?
