Paul,
I started a new topic for easier future reference. See image below from the SWF catalog.
Stoddard sells a satin silver that is pretty close to the original finish - - -

Interesting that the Speedster blades appear to be longer than the coupe and cabrio. Would have expected the other way around.

I have some NOS ones I would be happy to dig out if somebody needs more guidance on the color. From memory these have very little metallic and or more grey than the typical bright silver sparkling metallic. They also have a nice thick coat of clear
