Whether you're restoring a 1960 Cadillac, repairing an existing paint job, painting a model or attempting any other art project or task that requires the paint to be authentic, there's no need to wonder how you'll get that paint to match. With one of a few different number codes, you can order the right shade of paint, made to look just as it did on the Cadillac vehicles sold in 1960. Some colours may no longer be offered by the vehicle manufacturer, but may have codes that can be used to order them from paint companies.
