Must be an oil base paint. You'll have to test a bit of it to see how it compares to the modern matched colour.

I can't believe it wasn't solid either. Like Alan said, I would get a color match soon as now that it has been opened it might not stay good. I don't know if I would paint anything with it anyway LOL

I opened up some Ford Gray no telling how old. It was still good. I rubbed some on some metal & it cured just fine. I've found with the old enamels, you can still use either acrylic enamel hardener or straight enamel hardener. I use the "wet look" type. Been doing this all my GT years.

Jerome: I didn't think to write down the part # that was on the can. ....Is it still readable?

Was that a pint, 1/2 pint, or quart?
