Hi everyone! I'm really hoping someone can help me out with this. I am a graphic designer and am colorizing an old photo from 1935. There are three old gas pumps in the photo and I want to get the colors on them historically correct. But for the life of me, I cannot find any color photos of these exact models. Can anyone help me out?

From "PCM Guide to Gas Pump Restoration" (out of print) color schemes
Ethyl pump was ochre yellow with red base and trim. Pump on right was dark green with a black base. Center pump has a "New Action" globe which is not listed, but is likely a regular grade that was light yellow with a black or dark blue base and trim. The AMOCO round logo has red panels above and below text. The American Gas round logo has a red dot in the center.
