    Default 1938 Hollywood green

    Does anyone have any pictures of a bike painted the correct 38 Hollywood Green? I have been on John P. website and the color chip shown is not anywhere close to the John Deere green that Carl described it similar to on a separate thread......what is the best way to get a good accurate color? Just trying to decide green or blue..the Venitian blue seams to be pretty easy to get pictures of but the green seams a little tougher? Any help is greatly appreciated!

    John Deere Green is nowhere close to Hollywood Green.

    Antique Cycle Supply used to sell a paint card for the Hollywood Green, so maybe someone out there still has one.

    I had a set of original paint 38 EL tanks that we used for matching and they were a lot closer to JD green than they were to Pierce's sample on his website. I haven't looked at Carl's website lately but there was a picture of a 38EL with the original paint tanks there a while ago.

    Thanks everyone for the input! I will correct myself as I now realize that John Deere had multiple green colors and with fading etc. It is as questionable as everything else......I will call Carl or see him in Fremont....
    Robbie I would like to see your pictures.....does it match the 38 on Carl's website? It seams a lot closer than the Pearce web picture for sure....

    Here is John Deere Green.

    Here is 1938 Hollywood Green.

    To my eye they are very different.

    Chris, I think you have your pictures mixed up. You are correct, they do look different. If you can find a John Deere that is from 1938 and faded out like the bike they will be a lot closer though.
