is that the dark blue or the lighter blue that you sometimes see?
I personally prefer the darker.

I tried to cross those two numbers from the book and got nada. I'm gonna need the dark blue and the yellow myself for my MS70 before too long and would like to have the codes as a place to start. I've got a couple of yellow globe bodies but they are both a little different shade of yellow.

I ran the Blue code on Paintref.com and it was at least the older (possibly darker) shade, 1950. Unfortunately no other codes showed up...was called "Dairymans Blue"...

Shervin-Williams Sunoco Blue is listed as 42294. Other blue is listed as Blender Blue 5955...

Maybe that code is better/possible to mix than PPG?

Thanks Steve. I wish it was an original, but it's not.
