Does anyone have a list or numbers of the original colors available on the L-29 Cords?

Responding to Curtis Bartell's question -- I was able to obtain from the ACD
Automobile Museum archivist Jon Bill a photocopy of a two page (really
three pages, the cover page and pages 1 and 2) artifact entitled "DITZ-LAC
Master Color Service" Copyright 1935 [Revised 6-1-36] published by the
Ditzler Color Company of Detroit, Michigan. Listed are the Auburn-Cord
Color Schedules for application of paint products using the Ditz-Lac Intermix
System. Listed are color combinations and intermix numbers for several 1931-1936 Auburn models AND for 1931 Cord models with breakdown by
type of body (coachwork) and application for Body and Fenders , Raised
Portions , Wheels and Stripe. I am sure Mr. Bill could supply a similar
copy to interested persons. Good luck to Curtis in selecting a "proper
and authentic" color combination for his L-29 under restoration. See you
you at Auburn in late August. Jonathan ( Jack ) Richards at Red Oak, Iowa

I found 1929 Auburn color chips and paint at TCPGlobal.com. The 1929 Auburn page is at:

The same site, in its "Auto Color Library" section, shows Auburn colors for 1931 - 1936 also.

I have bought paint from these folks and have been happy with the purchases.
