So now anyhow, going back to that Paintref 1984 Ford fleet chip page...

http://paintref.com/cgi-bin/chipcreate. ... Fleet&ret=

...if 93-79039 and 6864 are the same color, chances are pretty darn good the two Singer greens, 7237 (93-57625) and 93-98021, are identical as well...

Digging even deeper into this particular hole, in the 1969 fleet book Paintref has, the Singer/Seven-Up green located on the upper left is labeled as 93-74110. LOL

93-79039 is on the lower left...

93-74844, on the lower right, is Seven-Up's secondary lighter green color and the next lighter shade from 93-79039...

Notice the newer logo on the door which, compared to the older paint job on the body, may indicate how the regular Seven-Up green initially aged, or it could just be mismatched... LOL

Anyway, so now it looks like Safety Always 5248 Yellow the last time the Reading's 900's were painted...

Didn't see that one coming, huh? LOL Have a great Memorial Day weekend, everyone!!!
