About 15 years ago I saw and used thick catalogs of automotive paint chips 
(published by paint manufacturers such as PPG) which listed the vehicles 
that had that paint as original color. The chips were keyed to the formulas 
for mixing that color in the paint store. Then, the responsible painter had 
to use judgement in adjusting the mix to accommodate age and fading.

Where are all the catalogs?  I haven't visited an auto paint store in a few 
years. Maybe there is an online catalog somewhere. Chime in here all you 
car painter/people who are in touch with an auto paint supplier.
