Rod & Restoration Color Collection

Sherwin-Williams Automotive Finishes has been creating classic colors for restored hot rods and muscle cars for decades. In fact, for several year Sherwin-Williams and Barrett-Jackson Auction House® teamed up to provide car collector enthusiasts a unique palette of custom automotive paint colors reminiscent of the greatest muscle cars and those of today’s top custom car builders. Now Sherwin-Williams has taken its custom expertise to a new level, with the introduction of the Rod & Restoration Color Collection. Perfect for body shops looking to take on specialty restoration or custom work – perhaps to build the show worthy car that promotes your shop – the new Rod & Restoration Color Collection appeals to both professionals and the weekend car enthusiast.

Made from a series of optically enhanced automotive paints containing special combinations of highly reflective additives, the 200 colors within this collection offer stunning, radical, multi-dimensional finishes.


Rod & Restoration intermix formulas can also be found within the Sherwin-Williams FormulaExpress® 2.0 online color formula retrieval system utilizing our waterborne or solventborne systems. These can be easily found by the chip number, color name, or even the original color code we hand-matched.

The Rod & Restoration Color Collection provides three dynamic color categories to choose from: Exact Match OE Classic, Barrett-Jackson Modified Muscle Car and Rod & Custom. And to make it easy to see these colors we created a Color Visualizer tool that brings these colors to life! Check out this website or stop by your local Sherwin-Williams Automotive Finishes store to order a fan deck for your shop! Ask for part number AS3281.
