    Same old question, but no, I can't check the CCOT page. Looking for the code of the dark green original on my 1960 FJ25. Oldest chips my local suppliers have is the '64-'67 one. My green is a little darker than the T453 Judson Green:

    I can get it color matched from a piece of the truck, but its not in the best shape (but damn amazing I've got original paint on the underside). I'd like to compare it to a chip if possible. So anyone know of a '59-'60 Toyota or Toyopet sample sheet?

    Holy six year old posts!

    Dean, I never found a documented color code. Fox colormatched for his project he may have a mix number........................I went with a premixed forest green that was close enough for my eye.
