    Touch-up Paint

    Anyone know where I can get some early '70s touch up paint - specifically Light Ivory? Surprisingly, my local dealer claims they only have touch-up paints listed for cars after 1980.

    Try a paint supplier and have them mix it for you based on your cars current color (considering age and fade). PPG uses something called "The Prophet". They'll take a couple of readings. The Prophet seems to work very well on solid colors, especially whites or shades of white. I understand metallics are not a strong suite but that doesn't apply to your situation.
    Sikkens has a "reader"as well but my paint guy said he has had the worst luck with that one as they always end up doing extra tinting to get close.

    Another resort is:
    These guys make spray cans as well.

    Another one is:

    Good luck,

    Try Performance Parts. They carry touch-up paints. Don't know if they carry yours but they had one for my '73.
