Fixing to paint my 1926 coupe. What gets body color and what gets black? Inside dash and window moldings? Headlight buckets and bar? Hood shelf's? Seat base? And everything below body gets black. And were their any special order colors like royal maroon on the 1926 coupe?

Well as far as color, I remember hearing Henry Ford famous words.. "You can have any colour as long as it's black" but noaday's it's what in your heart.. It's your car so what color would you like.. Don't please other men's. with what they like you to have, first please yourself with the color you'd like..

The coupe body and hood was in color. Black goes on the chassis, fenders, splash shields, headlamps, bar, hood shelfs, ect on the outside.

Normally the dash and molding is body color, could be black.




Here are the colors for the body:

How about an early 1926 model coupe paint. Have what I think is an original engined T with a December 1925 DOM. Is there any way to determine body and interior colors from serial numbers? Would like to renew it back to its original color. Thanks,Dave

See Bruce McCalley's Model T Encyclopedia for extensive information on paints and colors.

I don't know if there was a difference in model's colors that early, but my '26 Tudor also had an early December 1925 DOM and it was black from the factory.

Dan gave good info. You will likely never match the original color as there are no well preserved paint chips and original paint has changed dramatically with time. The gray might be an exception. Make your best decision and paint away, I am sure if you are wrong someone will tell you. They might be just as likely to tell you that you are wrong if you are right.

I am trying to match the dark green color shown in this ad. Does anyone know which of the 26/27 green colors this is?

Thanks for any help.

I know the Ad says Channel green but I can't find a formulation that matches the dark color

closest I found was 34 gmc truck
