    LMC1500 paint

    Looks like they used GM WA9417. But maybe I will have to sell since it does not do too well on the snow...compared to the Tuckers.

    LMC1500 paint

    Does anyone know if an industry standard paint color or code was used on the 1985 LMC1500? This one spent most of its life stored inside and shows little fading. But there are a few spots needing touch-up.
