flat black textured

I recently bought a 1948 chevy truck, the color is flat black with a slight texture to it, it looks awesome, but I can't find anyone who knows how it was done. The guy I bought it from said it was House of Colors blace suede, I called them they don't carry a black suede, any ideas

Flat black lacquer type primer. Sprayed thick and at a longer than normal distance from the surface. Will give you that look.

Yes, old tech, air dry. To add a little gloss you can add some of the same brand gloss black lacquer. Trial and error. Don't spray it over bare metal and leave uncoated as it is porous and will let moisture penetrate to the metal. You can also clear coat it with a flat or semi-gloss clear for moisture protection.
