Hi guys.

Often on Ebay I see paint chips available for 55/56/57 cars.
But there seem to be quite a few different ones.
car/corvette/truck but also different brands.

which one would be the correct one?

thanks :)

Short answer would be none of them. Most of what you see are printed colors that maybe match the original color. What you want is the original color standard panels supplied by the paint supplier to Chevy. These are steel panels that are painted with the original paint. These panels were required to approve the color prior to it being used in production. Supplier would most likely be Dupont. I see these on Ebay every so often. Same color can be (and was) used by different divisions of GM and called different names.

OK,

Those metal chips, would that be like these ? chips ebay

My car is dusk pearl with a cream top.
Not the most common color. I have seen a few cars in the same color, but parked close to each other there is a big difference. So now I'm curious how the "real" dusk pearl looks.
