Dupont code 93-83030 - brown
This brown automotive paint color is most commonly known as Palomino Tan. The color formulation has been used only in 1958, primarily by Ford. We have records of this color appearing on the Thunderbird and Fairlane. See the full detailed list below.

Dupont codes starting with "246-" and ending with a 4 or 5 digit number where used from 1920 through the 50's with a few "93-", "202-", and "210" prefixed codes thrown in early on. "93-" paint codes appear to be reserved for Truck/Fleet or very popular paints while the "202-" and "210" where metallic paints. As new paint types came out more prefixes were introduced and the 4 or 5 digit suffix became a very good way to track paint usage between years.
