That should be quite feasible with any 240mm lens made in the past century, whether it's coated or not.
Most of my colour photos were shot with single- or uncoated lenses ranging from a 8 1/4" WA Rectilinear (on 4x5") to a 210mm f:6.1 Xenar (on 5x7").
I use a 240mm Nikkor which I hope will be good for colour photography on 8x10.
