    1950 Buick Vin decode

    Hi folks, I just bought a 1950 buick on ebay, I'm stuck in california for a job and the car is located in NY, so no chance for me to see it. The vendor sent me a couple of pics of the VIN and the cowl tag...
    VIN reads: 35947964
    Tag reads: 1950 MOD 50-52
    Style n 50-4519
    BODY N BL 8821
    TRIM N 50
    PAINT N 222 (what colour is that?)
    TOP ACC
    NO PS OR PB???

    that's kinda familiar as looks a lot like the tag on my other 56 buick, but I'm a bit puzzled on the paint colour....hope someone could drop a hint
    thanks

    Alex

    They are screwed on, makes it easy to pull them off for painting
