    I know this isn't HAMB friendly, but when I think of a '60 Chevy and Seafoam Green I think of Troy Trepanier's "Pro Box"-leading edge for it's time

    Thanks. It actually loses its color and looks silver in low light. Had someone call it gold the other night when it was parked under a sodium vapor street light. I wanted somethin custom, but still mint colored like it came out of a swatch book from 1955.
     
  6. I just finished a pinstriping job on this 58 Apache. I dont know if it is exactly sea foam green, but it is definately green. Super nice truck, with top quality craftsmanship. He top coated it with etching primer.

    Hmmm I painted a 68 Charger. what they called Seafoam Green and it was very Different from this Seafoam Green. But I DO like the color in these pictures for anything 50's Early 60's. Gotta have an accent color with it too though !
     
  19. Green is my favorite color. I used to have a '95 GMC Sonoma that I had painted that new VW beetle green.

    Seafoam rules--very Industrial color. Especially with red pinstripes.

    A place to go for lots of seafoam/white color combos in big slabs like your 'wagon would be the pix/owner's section of www.sweptline.org . Dodge trucks 61-71, not that HAMB approved, but...

    My truck is desert turquoise. If it weren't seafoam green would be right up there.

    Funny thing, most guys' (myself included) colorblind problems seem to be in the turquoise/green area. Some of the postings look definitely more blue than green here.

    Some of the flatter lighter greens just make me want to lick them. Ummmmm ice creammmmm.

    Painted my 51 Fleetline Seafoam Green and it turned out great. Sorry, don't have a current pic to post. It seems to be one of the favorite colors right now!
