    Question Cromodora wheels gold colour code?

    Hello,

    I know that this has been discussed on the forum already, I remember reading it somewhere, but I could´nt find it with the search bar anymore so I am creating a new topic. Apologies if this is already posted somewhere else..

    So, I recently bought a set of S1 6J13 Cromodora wheels and need to repaint them. Does anyone know the closest colour code to the original golden wheels?

    Thank you

    Did the Cromodoras ever came gold from the factory?
    I have only seen them silverish. same as the Campagnolos. AFAIK they were originally all a matte silver. Maybe competition cars had them painted gold.
    Cheers,
    William

    The works team did paint Cromodoras gold, but only very rarely; they almost always ran them in silver

    Did they ever paint the Campagnolos gold on the HF works cars?

    Both the early HF Campys and the 1972 4-spokes were painted gold.

    Early 1.6HF? 1.3HFs Campagnolos were silvery grey.

    Works 1,3HFs as well as 1,6HFs ran gold-painted Campagnolos (though not exclusively)

    There aren't a lot of period color photos of the 1,3HF. But Autocar 27 Feb 1969 covered the 1,3HF as part of its "Given the Works" series; the opening spread, pp 36-37, has a color action shot of a 1,3HF with blurry but gold Campys. Of course as with most things Lancia, there are likely as many exceptions as rules...

    I'm thinking about painting my 5.5 13 Campagnolos gold when I respray my S1 1.3s in what I hope is the correct original Turchese Mereweld. I'm sourcing the paint from Max Meyer in Italy. The original owner claimed he bought them with the car as a dealer upgrade. They are the original silver. At some point long ago the HF letters was put on the rear alongside the 1.3s. Those will go bye bye. I think the gold wheels will look great with this color.
