Pre A cab dash and window frame color

I have cab 60240 and wanted to confirm the color scheme for the dash and related areas. My window garnish was maroon as was the dash, but is the inside of the window frame also supposed to be that color?

Yes, inner frame, defroster tubes and firewall behind the dash, and dashboard ends the same maroon color.

The split of the exterior color and the dash & window frame color should be along (near) the screw holes for the aluminum retaining strip & window weather strip. This is 60238 in Shane East's spray booth in Orange, CA a couple years ago. My defroster tubes and firewall were exterior black (with some strawberry red overspray) when I took the car apart so we went with the same. Front, back and ends of the dash were maroon. Perhaps the same birthday as your car - 08/17/53?

And does anyone have the PPG paint formula or other paint company formula for the maroon color?

The original color on my dash ends was scanned and the paint was mixed to match them. No color code or formula information on the can of touch-up paint I got from Shane, and I got the impression he was adding a drop of this and a drop of that to get the match.
It could be the '50-'52 Maroon color (Reutter No. 502), but I have nothing that documents this.
If you don't have clean dash ends, backside of dash or inside glovebox door to scan I can dip a piece of cardboard in my touch-up paint and send to you to use.

I would appreciate that greatly, Spencer. My dash was media blasted and what I have left for paint color on the door tops and dash ends is suspect. You can mail to my address: 630 Pemberton Rd., Grosse Pointe, Mich 48230

Thanks!
