    I am restoring a 1949 Merc Convertilbe that my father-in-law purchased brand new in 1948.  Although all the paint is gone from it I have the original purchase agreement.  The color of the car was lima tan.  We have been able to match it but the color is not like any I have seen on any brochures or model cars that I’ve seen on ebay or on any other web site.  Can anyone tell me about the color lima tan or have a picture of a lima tan merc?

    Thanks Jerry.  I looked it up but the chips are so small it makes it hard to judge the color.  If anyone has a color picture of a Merc painted Lima Tan I would sure appriciate seeing it.  On the Eary Ford V-8 club forum there was a similar discussion from soneone else who said that there were very few Merc’s painted that color.

    Just click on the color chart and it is magnified 4-5 times the size and is easy to view!

    and is easy to view!  Then place your cursor on the color and it is again magnified even larger!
