Gale - lotsa good color matching advice on this recent thread…

Most paint manufacturers don’t publish their formulas (except BASF Glasurit afaik). But here’s all who make that paint color.

 

Info for Nevada (both code 001 and 7810 variants):

Mark, do you know the brand and style (1 or 2 stage) of paint? Without it the formula ain’t worth much.

 

Surprised that paint mix is from 6 years ago…

 

TIA,

Tom

I don't know the Brand or Style.  Mine was single stage Glasurit.  Perhaps, Colton Napa keeps records on their batches.  6 years goes by pretty fast.  Remember, there was a 2 year Covid break.  Mine went in to the body shop 2020, came back in 2022.

Researching those formula codes comes up with a Martin Senour Pro//Base Paint from Napa Auto.  This paint is their PBT restrictive line for CA (1 to 1 Base to Reducer) with a clear coat.  Cypress Gold is an older Ford color, but it would be interesting to know if Napa folks have the mixing formula for Martin Senour 21505 (Nevada 001) in their database.  If #21505 is still in the database, you can probably use the Martin Senour Pro//Base PBS Single Stage for a more OEM look, good news for folks outside CA.

My car has been painted alpineweiss 2 over the original nevada so i want to go back original.  inside door jambs inside trunk engine compartment all have been changed so this will be a fair challenge.  i do have the original color under the dash and it appears to be a much lighter color than the cypress gold shown on the can of paint pic provided mark 92131.  could be the ambient light could be my 77 year old eyes but im taking to a paint mix shop and have it scanned.  under dash is a good place to find original paint that hasnt faded (much)

I does look considerably darker in the shade.  Mine was painted in Glasurit 22 Single Stage using the original formula for Nevada out of the Glasurit database.  It does have the subtle Olive undertones I was looking for in this color that some formulas don't reflect.  I does look different in direct sunlight and shade.

Just to clarify, Marks’s car is using the Glasurit single-stage Nevada paint formula I posted initially. It isn’t Cypress Gold, which I guess was what was used in the raffle car, and that Mark’s provided that paint can formula from.

Just a quick update.  I reached out to Martin Senour about the availability of #21505 Nevada Olive Paint code.  They provided 2 options in their Pro//Base paint line.  

 

PBT (CA restricted formula, Base and Clear Coat)


Formula: 100996227

PBS (Single Stage formula)

Formula: 101024860
 
So for people looking for a less expensive option to repaint their Nevada cars, you should be able to walk into your local NAPA store, order a pint and do a spray out to see how close these look to original Nevada.

I'm John, the raffle-car-guy.  I've a call this week with the former owner and would be happy to ask a few questions, but in earlier emails, he shared some variability in the Nevada color between suppliers when he was restoring the car.  This was the mix he shared to ensure a tight match if I ever need it (God forbid!)  I've heard from several different folks who saw the car in person that they thought the color was spot on - just the right mix of olives and mossiness - for the original Nevada color (this chassis left the factory in Riviera).  The car did come with a can of Code 001 Nevada touch up paint, which I dabbed on a scrap of primed metal in the basement on Saturday.  Whatever this mix is, it matches perfectly to the naked eye with the 001 touch up in the sunlight this afternoon.  It's definitely a more olive-tan than gold color - and is beautiful in person.  Online pics of Ford Cyprus Gold (not the Cypress Gold Metallic, which is clearly different) look quite a bit different to me.  Whatever it is, I love the color (and can't wait to get it out on the road come spring)!  Attached are a few pics in the sun today (45 degrees and sunny here in the North.)  As Mark notes above, the color shifts a fair amount by lighting.  Darker and more olivey/brownish/tan in the darker shade and a much lighter olivey-tan in direct sunimage.thumb.jpeg.30118c3a99ddb5098edee7cee2e56a40.jpegimage.thumb.jpeg.37ab5fcedabeb474e2145cca452e2dea.jpeg

The salt is finally off the streets in MN and I had a chance to wash the car and get it on the road over the last week.  Here's my car's Nevada/"Nevada" color (the formula above) in various natural light settings.

Slowly, sorting out some idle and tuning issues with the S14 before moving on to interior work.

    BMW Neue Klasse - a birth of a Sports Sedan

    Unveiling of the Neue Klasse Unveiled in 1961, BMW 1500 sedan was a revolutionary concept at the outset of the '60s. No tail fins or chrome fountains. Instead, what you got was understated and elegant, in a modern sense, exciting to drive as nearly any sports car, and yet still comfortable for four.   The elegant little sedan was an instant sensation. In the 1500, BMW not only found the long-term solution to its dire business straits but, more importantly, created an entirely new

    History of the BMW 2002 and the 02 Series

    In 1966, BMW was practically unknown in the US unless you were a touring motorcycle enthusiast or had seen an Isetta given away on a quiz show.  BMW’s sales in the US that year were just 1253 cars.  Then BMW 1600-2 came to America’s shores, tripling US sales to 4564 the following year, boosted by favorable articles in the Buff Books. Car and Driver called it “the best $2500 sedan anywhere.”  Road & Track’s road test was equally enthusiastic.  Then, BMW took a cue from American manufacturers,

    The BMW 2002 Production Run

    BMW 02 series are like the original Volkswagen Beetles in one way (besides both being German classic cars)—throughout their long production, they all essentially look alike—at least to the uninitiated:  small, boxy, rear-wheel drive, two-door sedan.  Aficionados know better.   Not only were there three other body styles—none, unfortunately, exported to the US—but there were some significant visual and mechanical changes over their eleven-year production run.   I’ve extracted t
