Does anyone have a resource for a close match spray paint color for a 1950's Emerson Roll-A-Bout Sea Breeze. It's a very unusual vintage color. Ideally, looking for the closest "sea breeze" spray paint in a rattle can. Thanks so much everyone!

I doubt there’s an exact match. Your best bet is to take a piece of the fan to one of the big box stores and find a Rustoleum or Krylon spray bomb that’s a close match.   The alternative is automotive paint, but that can get pricey. Some auto paint stores can color match and put it in an aerosol can for you but it runs $20+ per can.

Thank you Lane. I would love to retain the original paint finish, but the spots of rust are everywhere. I've tried Bar Keepers Friend and Rubbing Compound but no luck. I imagine it will take emery cloth, Ospho prep. and a fresh coat of paint to clean it up. I appreciate your advice on color matching at an Auto Parts Store.
