    I saw this coupe in a post by Titus and was wondering if anybody out there knows what color this is. I didn't want to highjack his thread so I started this one.

  2. OD Olive Drab that's been rubbed out. Of course I'm moderatly color challenged.
     
  3. Some variant of pewter?

    Looks kinda like an original Ford color -- Winter Leaf Brown?

    That is Jim Houstons coupe. It was featured in rod and custom late last year or early this year.

    50Fraud- That's what I was thinking. I was wondering if it's a stock Ford color.

    Does anybody have that Rod and Custom I'd like confirmation of the color.

    If you Google "Winter Leaf Brown", you'll get a picture of Vern Tardel's roadster, which appears to be the same color.

    If you paint the wheels are khaki you'd have to paint the car like a hawaiian t-shirt and give it a beer gut. :D

    The May 2011 Rod & Custom states that it is PPG Winter Leaf Brown.

    nice paint job but its a little bland for me. Olive Drab that has been slightly tinted would be my guess
