Paint = Lackierung für Cabrio-Limousine 1937
« on: November 09, 2013, 12:16:56 PM »
Good morning my new friends, i'm restoring my prewar 170v.
I've got a problem with paint (lackierung) of my car.
Does anybody know how to compare the color scheme tables, for example: bodywork d'blue 03365 from (tacaria.com.pt) dated 15.12.1937, Is it the same of the 1950 ""Mittelbalu DB 350""(from your web site).

Auf deutsch sprechen:
""Karosserie d'blau 03365"" (from tacaria.com.pt)---> wich color is to use now? Is it the same of the 1950 ""Mittelbalu DB 350""(from your web site).

Welcome to the group!

I checked and could not find any cross-reference information between prewar and postwar paint colors.  In fact I can't find any paint sample charts that indicate what the prewar colors even look like.  From brochures and pictures, many of the prewar colors seem more vibrant and intense than postwar colors.

Hopefully someone in the group has some additional information that will help in your search.

Just looking at the chart for the 1937 for the 170V cabrio-limo.  It lists "d'blau" which I believe is an abbreviation for "dunkelblau" or "dark blue" in english.  The post war color for dark blue is DB 332.  But again, without prewar color samples, this may not be an equivalent.

I am envisioning a color combination something like this (from a 1934 Mercedes 130H).  I don't know if this is "d'blau 03365".

There are some very good color charts on the MBZ Ponton site (http://mbzponton.org/). I doubt that the colors changed too much from the 170/220 to the pontons.

Yes, post war 170/220 share the same DB paint codes as the Pontons.  Hugo was looking for prewar 170V paint colors which had completely different paint codes and to some extent different formulations of paint.

Yes, I understood this, but just thought it might be a good place to start to find a color he liked. Perhaps an email to Tom Hanson at the Classic Center might turn up something.
