I have searched the forums for this theme and wanted to ask a few opinions on this topic. I may be starting a 40 Coupe Ute project this year,( with luck a 39 in fall) and am kind of torn on color. They will both be built as Deluxe models. Both are body shells, so they are not nut and bolt restos. I know black is always acceptable, as are the Garnet Maroon, Claret Maroon and Mandrin Maroon factory colors. I know that the color I want is all I need to worry about, but I think certain cars look better with specific colors. Big cars, well in this case Fat Fendered, look better with the right color. Its about proportions.
