I'm in need of a new paint job on a 78 T140v and I wanted it to have some factory colors. Is there any place to find the factory paint colors and combinations?

According to this brochure there were four color schemes.

But then this brochure talks about a Special with a "striking all black gold lined finish".

Looks like the Special was a T140D though, so it might not be 'correct' if that's something that matters to you.

And I've heard of people getting good paint from Don Hutchinson here:

Hope that helps.
