Default Color

Anyone know what color this is? Is this an original color. It looks too dark to be guardsman.

I think that’s Guardsman Blue, it’s just in shadow of the trees on an overcast day.

Thanks Larry. It looks darker than guardsman usually does but you may be right about the trees /shade.

Assuming these are race cars and the GT40 is in Gulf colors, then this car would be darker than Guardsman and looks like Shelby team colors.

The Cobra is CSX2513. While it has had quite a restoration past, you can look it up to see it in different light situations.

I know the previous owner and was around the car a bit. As I remember its darker, will ask Dave if he remembers.

Update

He said " great question"
car was painted by McCluskey 20+ years ago. So we are all still guessing....

I’ve been around a number of original cars painted Guardsman blue and you can see variation in each one. It depends on who’s mixing the paint and what company is supplying the color among other reasons. If you wanted to copy a true Guardsman blue, you’d have to match it to a car with original paint and there’s only a couple of those left.

Thanks for all of the info. Jeff and Larry. As luck would have it, and now that I think about it. I have a close friend one state away that has a McCluskey built daytona coupe and it is supposedly guardsman as well but it is dark like 2513. I might just do a match on that car if my little project gets off the ground.

Thanks Guy's
