I did go the Ford Tractor grey route at one point and it's a bit light.  It may have been a poor remix of the colour too as I've never seen Ford tractors that light.

The colour mentioned in the CLC forum thread looks spot on to me.

Well Peter, it shouldn't be long now! I finished the first three production sets today. If those that are interested could send me their shipping addresses I can give a full quote including shipping plus payment info. I expect that by the mid next week the remaining seven sets will be ready to go as well.

If you give us the serial number stamped on the front of the engine we may be able to narrow it down some. The 7X-208 is an early build engine. This means you have the early style 1956 heads. See attached pic to note the location of the serial number

I finally got brave enough to bead blast some hinges.  They came out nice. I need to buy a new box of abrasive material.

Prepping the doors inner panel. Primed and sealed.
On the matter of the rubber cable conduits,  I'm using the 97 to 04 Corvette conduits because the original rubber came out in pieces. They where all gone and can't find repros.
The Corvette units from  97 to 04 models,  are longer the the previus years and are a perfect fit. (20.00 bucks at Ebay)

@Timo , here is another thread concerning this topic, including the color code and exact Ford sales name. Our member (and former '61 owner) @Dan LeBlanc is the contributor.

The car in question here is a '59, but the information is also correct for '61/'62.

Oval55oval  If you look on the left side of the enjine you will find a serial no# . Just above the oil pan toward the front.You may have too clean it off if it has a lot of paint on it to find it.That will be the same no# that the car was and go from there.Alot of clubs have history on caddy no# .That enjine most likely came out of an Eldorado .
