    Default 403 paint codes

    Am looking for some paint codes for 403.

    Advertisement


    Many years ago we had a 403 wagon which i am told was Marocan Tan (nipple pink). This is the colour code I am seeking.

    Anybody know where or from whom this detail can be gleaned?

    I was told that 403's were imported without final coat and were paint as you wished unless it was Eiffel Grey or White. !!

    The 403 was originally assembled by Canada Car & Cycle in Melbourne and from 1959 by Continental and General Distributors. I don't know if Harden & Johnson did assembly work in Sydney but you often find their plate on commercials. C&G used Dulux paints. Colours were fairly staid and I certainly don't remember a pink.

    Thank you for all you thoughts and comments guys. Very intresting

    Looks like I'm going to have to delve through the family albams before I make the trip the the paint place. I have a feeling that it was a dulux colour but in another thread the dulkux colour codes are no longer avalable.

    Default Pink '03

    Burrinjuck,

    I was sure that I had posted you on this thread, but it must have gone astray. Mr.WP (Wym) Bianchi, well respected, now retired, panel and crash repairer of Adelaide, repaired Peugeot for many years and would probabley have some information to help you. He is a private citizen but listed in the Adelaide Phone Directory. Tell him that Michael with the 403 suggested you call him. I rebuilt a "pink" 403B many years ago and remember the colour fondly.

    Cheers ed ge
