Does anyone know if Deep Maroon, was a base color for the 48 super six car series? I believe that was the original color of my 48 Business or club coupe

    Does the stamp on the door hinge also apply to later model years as my ‘51?

    It should apply to later years too.  The upper passenger hinge on my 53 was stamped with a 5 which corresponds to black in the Ditzler color charts.  My car was originally black.
