Paints for classic cars
Our paint expertise has accompanied 130 years of automotive history – right from the very beginning. During this time, we have compiled the world's largest colour database, where 250,000 colours and 600,000 mixing formulas are archived. And, best of all for many manufacturers, our colour history documentation is nearly 100% complete.
Classic car ownership is a demanding hobby. You certainly invest a good deal of time and energy maintaining the value of your classic car. So when rust gnaws away at your pride and joy, the original metallic effect starts to fade or minor paint damage mars its luxurious appearance, it's especially annoying.
Only an ambitious overall respray or a perfectly matched panel repair can preserve the value of your classic car. But the OEM coating is usually no longer on the market. That means that the original colour must be matched as perfectly as possible.
To identify the right colour, you need a colour code or card, a painted car part or other colour reference. Most vehicles have a vehicle identification number with a colour code. Our practical colour code list in the Downloads area will help you with your search.
You can use our Color Online database to find out whether we already offer a colour solution for your classic car. If we don't yet have a colour solution available to you, please contact a Glasurit bodyshop near you.
Whether you want to refinish your car in the original colour or repair the original paintwork, finding the exact colour is the key factor in classic car restoration. Here you will find all the colour codes and other contemporary colours for your classic car.
