1940 Mercury Sahara Sand paint
This brown automotive paint color is most commonly known as Sahara Tan. Another common paint color promotional name is Sahara Sand. The color formulation has been used between 1940 and 1950, primarily by Ford; but also by Mercury. We have records of this color appearing on the Mercury and Ford Truck. See the full detailed list below.

The longer Ford paint manufacturing code is M1797 or M1797A. Ford production paint codes starting with M are usually followed by a 4 digit number and the letter "A" indicating its an exterior paint. The same code ending in the letter "G" is common for interior paints. These longer manufacturing codes are useful for tracking paint usage.
