From historical photos I have seen, it would appear the paint
was flat.
Commentary on details like this just take away from the original posting.
Call the museum if you really need to know.
Otherwise, give it a rest!

(PICS) New additions to the fleet... by Lloyd Mecca #25928
Gotta luv these Cadillacs! But never saw shiny paint on a staff car before. Hmm... (EOM) by Christopher Moroni #25928.1
Well, it is in a museum, so until you know their reason... (EOM) by Lloyd Mecca #25928.1.1
PIC--Apparently you weren't in the service. Generals are vain. Note Patton and chrome bumpers. by Frank Racibozynski #25928.1.2
It's about paint, not chrome. I'm no expert on WW II "regulation paint" but I thought all vehicles.. by Christopher Moroni #25928.1.2.1
From historical photos I have seen, it would appear the paint by Lloyd Mecca #25928.1.2.1.1
Calm down Llyod, relax. I just asked a question about shiny paint. Perhaps someone knows the answer. by Christopher Moroni #25928.1.2.1.1.1
I'm wondering if the museum car was not matte because it was pre-1941 by Jack Dodds #25928.1.2.1.1.1.1
And now I'm seeing BMWs and Range Rovers in flat and they're brand new (EOM) by John Quilter #25928.1.2.1.1.1.1.1
Yes.....this is something I will NEVER understand. (EOM) by Jack Dodds #25928.1.2.1.1.1.1.1.1
It's called ready made patina! (EOM) by John Quilter #25928.1.2.1.1.1.1.1.1.1
It's called a trend... LOL. Who knows what will be next; very hard to predict. (EOM) by Christopher Moroni #25928.1.2.1.1.1.1.1.1.1.1
I'll never understand flat paint on new cars either. (EOM) by Curtis Parisi #25928.1.2.1.1.1.1.1.1.2
Not sure just how you treat it either. Special wax? No wax ever? Flat wax?? (EOM) by Christopher Moroni #25928.1.2.1.1.1.1.1.1.2.1
It's about 4-stars having non-reg privleges--chrome, paint, pearl handle Colt revolvers, etc. Not GI (EOM) by Frank Racibozynski #25928.1.2.1.2
Then there was one general who used (briefly) a shiny metallic blue Mercedes! by Harvey Goranson #25928.1.2.1.2.1
Was that by chance a seized Mercedes ? (EOM) by Jack Dodds #25928.1.2.1.2.1.1
No, it ran quite well. :) (EOM) by John Kuvakas #25928.1.2.1.2.1.1.1

Ubercan stupid buut awkenstein funeek! (EOM) by Christopher Moroni #25928.1.2.1.2.1.1.1.3.1
You really got me with that one Jack! LOL (EOM) by Christopher Moroni #25928.1.2.1.2.1.1.1.3.2
Es ist eine dumme Aussage und nicht sehr lustig; aber ich bin kein Raketenwissenschaftler... :-) (EOM) by Jack Dodds #25928.1.2.1.2.1.1.1.3.2.1
Harvey, that's a great model! (EOM) by Christopher Moroni #25928.1.2.1.2.1.2
Very nice additions indeed Lloyd ! They're great ! (EOM) by Jean Philippe Sergent #25928.2
Nice additions. I like the Patton Cadillac. It is good to know that they restored the car by John Merritt #25928.3
I always thought the wrecked Patton car was a later model ??? (EOM) by Jack Dodds #25928.3.1
That would explain the the shiny paint John. Thanks. (EOM) by Christopher Moroni #25928.3.2
Its odd ....the only reason this car survived despite being totaled is because Patton was killed. (EOM) by Jack Dodds #25928.3.3
Yes... sadly. (EOM) by Christopher Moroni #25928.3.3.1
