    I am strongly considering painting my 63 Biscayne with a black top, and sort of battleship grey on the bottom.
    Here is a pic of it now, as I bought it, in ROUGH primer. I actually like the looks of it....different, and definately an old granny car.

    Any help on any paint codes or where to find a battleship grey ?
    Thanks much,
    Bob :)

    I really nice 'black' color is the new Dodge metalflake black color. It has different color flakes in it. That would look good for the roof. Nicel looking 63 by the way.

    If it was mine I'd paint it kind of seafoam w/ white roof, white wheels, poverty caps, white vinyl interior w/ a bench seat, and then I'd figure out how to wedge a big block olds under the hood w/ a 4spd, and a paxton blower... Seafoam always makes me think granny car.. Or Champagne...

    My grandma had an interesting color combo on a '55 Nomad, it was a salmon color, I think they called it Coral, and Shadow Grey... I'd like to have a Nomad in those colors.. it had a Power Pack 265.. and grandpa put duals and smithy's on it... I guess she had kids follow her home asking to buy it in the early 60's... They sold it to some one from California and it ended up getting cut up and turned into a drag car of some sort..

    Try to find a color chart with bumper colors, older Mercedes Benz had loads of different grey colors.

    All white with dog dish hubcaps and a nasty 425/409 under the hood. :D
     
  17. EVERYTHING looks looks killer in black. AND it's the cheapest color. AND you can do it in single stage and not have to buy clear. Metallic black just looks like it's dusty, and doesn't have the visual attack of straight black. I saw an AMC Matador in back and IT looked good.

    I see you are retired. I'm just old, but I like the the one color look. The 63 biscayne has great lines and is a real sleeper with the poverty caps.

    Here's a '64 Biscayne I did a few years ago...it needed two-toning to make it look good...

    If you decide on blak, just remember, if the body isn't 100% straight, you're going to regret it every day you get into it. Chrysler has some nice grays...

    Now that is NICE !! I like it, expecially with the hood and trunk painted to match the top.
    Hope you won't mind, but I may just copy that, with dark grey top, and light grey bottom.
    Thanks much!!!
