    Hi All:
    I’m repainting a 12HP Buccaneer that has the bronze/white/green colors. Can anyone tell me what color green is the best match? I can’t seem to find the right green for it.
    Thank you for your help.

    Thanks Ralph.
    Outboard Motor Paint & Decals is NYMarine. He does not have Gale colors. He does have a green listed but I have no idea if it is for the Buccaneer. Can you provide more info?
    Thank you

    The 1956 and 1957 green colors are not quite the same. These are original colors.

    Thanks Frank. I need the green that is on the brown motor. Where can I get that?

    I don’t know, unless you have a good sample for an auto paint shop to match.

    I don’t have a good example. I was hoping that someone who has restored one can tell me what color they used. The green on this motor is so faded, I can’t use it for an example.Surely, I can’t be the only one who has ever painted a 1956 Buccaneer 12HP!
