Hi, I need help in the identification of color found on the car, pic attached. It's a medium green with hue of blue.
This color is not in the '48 paint chips.
Will someone please help in the identification?

What country was the car assembled in?

Does it have a Fisher body or a Holden body?

The car was assembled in India and is Fisher bodied.

The US cars had a plate riveted to the fire wall that contained the paint number.

There was a 1947 color used on a limited number of 1948 US cars that looks like your color on my screen,
It was paint # 351, Lakeside Green. it was only used as the lower color on two tone cars with the top color Lullwater green, a darker green color #346.

I agree with Gene. It sure looks close to my '47 paint sample chips, at least on my screen.

Many thanks for decoding the mystery. I shall get both the colors made and update in a few days.
