In January 2021 someone asked me to make a database based on I mentioned this on website to do in the future if there are multiple people interested, and within 2 weeks other 2 people wanted the same. I post it here for everyone. Coverage: 1950s-present, it is focused on cars sold in US & Canada, but also include few models that aren’t sold there.

1st paint color database

2nd paint color database

In April 2019 another customer asked me to do the same for Europe, he suggested sourcing data from Coverage: 1970-present (note: a couple of cars have wrong production years in this website). This website turned to be not so good, database having poor sales, and I realized why: it lacks HEX codes that indicate color (it is indicated via an image swatch). By end-2020 two more purchased it.
