    Is there anyway to tell from the serial number what color my 47 station wagon was originally painted? Or even what colors were available? Thanks, Steve

        Steve,

        The only way to get any idea of the original color of your car from the serial number is to remove the tag from the firewall and see what color the firewall is underneath it.

        If no one removed the tag if/whenever it was repainted, that color should be the original.

        As far as the serial number itself, it doesn't give you a clue.

          Thanks Bruce & Fonda.  Since my tag has been painted over, I'm pretty sure it has never been removed.  What about a list of original colors? I have them by year for our Metropolitan, but so far haven't found that info for the Crosley.

            Steve,

            We have paint color charts for sale, with the color chips and a semi-modern paint conversion, where a conversion number is available.

            Many automotive paint suppliers can take the color chip and scan it with their color computer and come up with a match.
