Please help me with a color code for this color of car. I am wanting to restore my brothers car and I love this color. The car looks tan now but it has been setting for over 40 years.

I stumbled across this picture via a Woody Wagons forum, does anyone know who ownes this car? or how I might be able to reach the owner? My father and I restored this car several years ago (if this is the same one), and sold it to a Pilot in Evergreen, CO who eventually sold it to someone in CA. I'm not looking to buy it back or anything, I just want to find out how she's doing? kind of like an old lost girlfriend... Please have the owner contact me at trhap@yahoo.com

1947 Mercury Cabriolet Convertible. The car Ken photographed is, without a doubt, the finest example of a Mercury Convertible of this era I have ever seen. This car is equipped with every available option offered that year. It is in absolutely pristine condition and looks like it was just driven off the showroom floor. Mercurys of this era were powered by a flathead V-8 delivering just about 100 horsepower. The styling for this, and all 1946-47-48 Mercurys, was a carryover from the all-new 42's that had a much abbreviated production run because of World War II. Mercurys of this era bore a strong resemblance to Fords, only they were "dressed up" with a lot more chrome, and a more elaborate grille. Mercury would receive its own platform and individual styling when the first new post-war Mercury debuted in 1949.
