Shell slightly changed their shades of yellow through the years . I have the PPG Shell formula numbers for red and yellow in 1939 only. If I can help let me know and I will forward the PPG numbers for 1939. If your searching for another year stop by your local PPG dealer , they get excited about tough questions.

I was looking at my brothers old internet site, gaspumpcolors.com, that is dead now but he had two shell yellows, one used in the east and one used in the west. The west US one was the more popular orangy-yellow one apparently. He probably used that terminology because its how its listed in the paint color books.

But remember . . . . almost all the big restoration companies stock decals that DON'T match the original colors. The decals are printed (in large quantities) and the actual manufacturers don't match the colors to historical colors or to standard usage PMS colors.

So if you are planning on using reproduction decals or porcelain signs - you're better off color matching your paint to them.

Later . . .
