(Bordeaux Maroon : Chevrolet : 1934 - 1956)
At we have records of this paint for over 22 years of use.

This red automotive paint color is most commonly known as Bordeaux Maroon. Other common color promotional names include Mesa Tan and Maroon. The color formulation has been used between 1934 and 1956, primarily by Chevrolet; but also by Company Fleet Vehicles, Studebaker and GMC. We have records of this color appearing on the model of Chevrolet Special Order / Fleet and Studebaker Truck. See the full detailed list below.

The three Companies/Organizations with Fleet Vehicles using this color are: Chevrolet Truck, Studebaker Truck, and Borden.

Dupont codes starting with "244-" or "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. Both "244-" and "246-" where non-metallic body or trim paints with the "244" prefix being more rare and may have been alternative paints to the "246-" prefix. As new paint types came out more prefixes were introduced. For this report on Dupont code 93-1859, we have included variations with the prefix removed. In most cases this is okay; meaning, the main code is unique. The remaining digits are a good way to track paint usage between years.

Be careful with Dupont 4 digit codes (i.e. 1859 or 01859 or 246-1859) before 1946. There may have been some reuse in later years.
