1956 R26 colors

I've not seen much in the way of "official" color charts, but I understand that you could order just about anything you wanted, within reason.

There is a mono club on Yahoo at:


I'm not a member but could search the past posts and did find some threads on colors in the 1955 timeframe. Check it out and/or join that club and post your question there.
