And could you please post a picture that shows the information on the back side of the paint swatches?

Biba,the colour chips shown are all Alfa Romeo colours, many of them for the 750/101 Giulietta's. Bianco ambra,bianco/azzurro nube, beige banana,pergamena,rosso corallo and bleu notte were all used on various Giulietta models.Other than rosso corallo,unfortunately no reds!
Azzurro capri and garda were,I think, used on amongst others the 1900 SS, (some years ago I saw two 1900's at the Fiera Auto e Moto d'Epoca in Padova in those colours).
The bulk of the chips are Fiat and Lancia paint chips mostly of the fifties and sixties with some samples for OM trucks and a few for Innocenti cars.
Ps. I had to compress the pics because they would not download so the discriptions are a little indistinct, sorry.

Smile Paint color-65 Veloce Spider

I purchased a Pininfarina hardtop for my spider. The paint decal in the trunk of my car says DUCO, Montecatini, Rosso 95-C-9068; is this number the paint code, or does someone know the paint code so that I can give it to the gent that will paint my top?

Duco is the paint, Montecatini is the manufacturer and the color is Red 95-C-9068
Duco was Dupont's trade name for their lacquer. Most all of GM's iron
prior to'58 was sprayed in lacquer, Dupont and GM were inbed financially.

Something I stumbled upon doing some recent digging on paint...

Most new stores aren’t equipped to mix synthetic enamel since they’ve made a complete switch to acrylic paints. Also the old DuPont Dulux paint numbers are being replaced by DuPont Centari acrylic enamels. One way to convert Dulux to Centari numbers is to drop the prefix from the Dulux number. For example, a Dulux 93-57704 gray becomes a Centari 57704-A.

Is it possible that you could see if 9068A would be a color match based upon information that I just described?

Let your painter match the paint himself, if you try mixing to a formula you will have two separate and distinct colours on your car.

Computer analysis, 'eyeballing' and experience are the keys to a good colour match.

Here's a bit of unusuality from the above linked chart. AR 011, Bianco Ondine, was made for the the Renault Dauphine and Ondine cars that Alfa built under license from 1959 to 1966. 73,481 Dauphines were built at Portello alongside the Giulietta production line. About 2,000 of these were Ondines, the more expensive version. I did not see any other Alfa colors that mentioned Ondine or Dauphine so I suppose that the other colors used were normal Alfa colors that were the closest to those that Renault used in France for these cars but perhaps genuine Renault colors were used even if the paint was made in Italy. I don't know if Bianco Ondine was available on any Alfa models during the time that it was available.

There were a number of small differences between the French and Itaiian versions. All decals and instruments were printed in Italian. A number of Italian components like the ignition came from Italian suppliers rather than French. Exterior badging said Dauphine Alfa Romeo or Ondine Alfa Romeo. The Dauphine didn't compete with any part of Alfa's product line so it was a good deal for Alfa at the time. It was also a good deal for Renault as the Alfa-built cars could be sold for rather less in Italy than was the case for those directly imported from France so Renault could sell more units.

It's been a while since I was last on this thread, and am glad to see the Pozzi color wheel. May I ask if it contains a few Lancia colors, both Max Meyer names and numbers, specifically 13.665 Verde Allasion, and Forte dei Marmi 10.702?

Thank you,

Neither of those two colors are in the 28 or so Lancia color chips in the color wheel I have, if you’d like more info send me a pm or if you prefer mail me at, nick at dpbrokers dot co dot za.
