1952 Ford 4 dr sedan/ Need color code Info/ Sign In

Good Morning everyone here at the forum. I have a question about the color code that is printed on the vehicle ID tag.I wanted to know what the original color was on this car when new. The color code is F E and the Trim is 29.Does anyone know what this code is or maybe you know of a place where I can go to get this information.
I would really appreciate it very much if I could get some help in finding what the color was at the time.Right now,its a light green on the outside and a darker shade of green on the inside.The top is a Ford white I guess.Thanks for your help.

Well, after doing some more searching on this color code,I finally found a color chart from the 1950's and was able to get the paint color for my car.My color code on the id tag on the door said color code F E The F color is a Meadowbrook Green ( Outside) and the E is a Shannon Green( the inside color).Nobody locally had any color charts of that era so they could not help me but when I gave them this info,they crossed it to a PPG # 40461.Got my paint yesterday and getting my car ready to paint.A friend of mine who is a retired auto body man is going to paint it for me.Thanks to all for reading my post on this matter.Have a Good day.
PS, does anyone here have a 1955 or 56 chevy 2 door bel air project car for sale? Now that I am retired,I need to stay busy working or my bones and everything else will give up.Don't want that to happen.I am used to working 10 and 12 hours a day.I still get up at 4 am every morning.Feels good.If you do have this project car,you can email me privately and we can talk about it.Thanks.
