    Question 1954 Buick Century - How to find original color?

    I would like to know how to go about finding out what the original colors were of my 1954 Buick Century. As we go through the process of restoring the car, I would like to be as faithful to the original as I can.

    Start by going to the reference section, then years, '54 and have a look at the body number plate.

    Your 54 looks fine, but the color is probably not original. The reference sections is very helpful. These original items are from 1954 and were given to dealers to show the customers the available colors. All colors are 100% original and correct in any way.

    Here is my body tag http://picasaweb.google.com/lh/photo...eat=directlink

    It says my paint no is 5E

    I am having trouble figuring out what 5E means on the 54 paint reference page http://www.teambuick.com/reference/y...4/54paint.html

    Any help is appreciated.
