Default Curtis Robin Colors Help

A friend is working on an Curtis Robin, and is trying to find a
source that could help him document the colors this Conoco Curtis Robin was
done in.

The picture was taken around 1930 (sorry for the poor quality, it was copied
from an old magazine). The Continental Oil Company was based in Ponca City,
Oklahoma. It has since merged with Phillips Petroleum and they
(Conoco-Phillips) have not been forthcoming with any information. Seems that
since the merger, they have put a lid on sharing any info from the company

Since it seems that the Conoco logo was (in that era) red (or maybe
orange?), green and white, it's logical to assume that the plane was
probably something similar.

Any information that give us a source to contact for more information that
might help confirm this color scheme would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks for your help!
