    look at an original early ford paint chart, stick with a drab color to fit the style of rpu your building.

  6. What is the rest of the truck going to look like? I tend to lean to the stock colors (or at least colors from that era since there was a limited selection for colors for commercial vehicles until 1931) with black radiator shell, head lights, and tail light buckets like they were originally. The nice part is that it is that black paint is much cheaper than chrome.
