I doubt there is an off the shelf option. A good body shop or auto paint supply shop should have a special camera that detects all the different colours and metallics that make up your paint. They can then make you a custom spray can. I once had one made to match a custom black cherry paint job, turned out perfect. I just had one made for my '06 magnum, so they just used the paint code, even then apparently there were six different "hues", so I matched it to the car by eye. If your car wears its original single stage paint, that may complicate things.

Ok thanks , yeah there are a few that have the factory code f3 in a spray or can option , I’ll give them a try, also does anyone know who makes the best shocks for my fury? I punched in my year and make car for shocks and it says kyb shocks, gas adjust , after the shocks and exhaust system I will be getting the suspension looked at and get it on the road , I just took 53 years of grime off the car by spending the weekend with my buffer and putting compound and wax on her.

I had good luck with paintscratch.com when searching for GT8 for my Fury. I have no experience with F3 but most of our old cars are faded anyway even if they have been repainted in the past. Buff and wax on your Fury looks pretty good btw :thumbsup:

Consider that it might be tricky to get an off-the-shelf paint that will really match an aged paint. Why? From the first bit of UV light from the sun, the paint starts to fade from day one. In some cases, if the car was always garaged, a factory match might work better than one which has spent most of its time in West TX or AZ where the sun angle is more direct. Which means that getting a good paint supply to computer match your existing paint, then putting it in a spray can, might be the best approach. But then, after a few years, that custom match might not fade exactly like your original paint faded/aged.

The factory paint is acrylic enamel (otherwise known as "single stage"). Acrylic lacquer can be used to paint over it with, but the texture and hardness of the shine will not match the orig paint, by observation. But the lacquer is easier to use, with respect to having a completely duet-free spray area.

Enjoy!
