Correct Black interior paint for 65

I am going to be repainting the interior in my 65 coupe and was wanting to know where is the best place to buy the Black paint in a quart. Also, was the interior black a semi-gloss and what is the best way to remove the old paint from the interior quarter panels so that i dont remove/damage the texture.Thanks

I when through the same process on my 65 coupe last year. I was going to have my interior painted when I had my car in the paint shop. My paint guy couldn't cross the old Ditzler paint code to anything his data base even though Ditzler ended up becoming part of PPG. What I ended up doing was contacting PPG customer support and explained my problem. Those folks were very helpful, only thing they needed to know was what paint system my painter was using and they where able to provide the correct formula for the PPG paint system that was being used, a quart is the minimum amount they could provide the formula for. I am assuming if you have the formula, any auto paint supply store that sells PPG products could mix you a quart. As far as removing the paint and perserving the grain, just don't use sand paper. I used paint stripper followed by a wire wheel to remove the residue from the grain. You don't want to get too agressive, a softer or well worn wheel is best as to not put any deep scratched in the surface. Mine came out really nice though I thought it was a bit to glossy, I ended up shooting Eastwood semi gloss clear coat for painted surfaces to dull it down a bit.
