Thank you for the replies. Does anyone know what the trim 516 colours are? I'm looking to match the paint of the dashboard.

I don't have the 1953 Canadian swatches or info sheets.
Here is info gathered from the American 1953 Chev swatches ( many times GM used the same numbering system across all product lines )
1953 Chevs had a 2 tone dash and code 516 translated into India Ivory and Sungold.
Hope this may be of help.

 

Oh, and welcome aboard. 

Looking forward to hearing more about your car and seeing pictures.
