    I've seen this killer 49 shoebox at a couple recent shows like the sacramento autorama, it's built by lucky seven customs and I was wondering if anybody had any thoughts on what paint color this is and who it's manufactured by? Thanks

    To me looks like a multi stage paint... Which may be difficult to ID the COLORS used... Probably a HOK Tangerine Kandy, but what its over I have no Idea I would have to see close up to guess.

    Just guessing, but I'd say Candy Root Beer over Gold. But could be Tangerine over a dark base.
     

  5. I thought Root Beer when I first saw it. It might be that Harley color they market as cherry black over tangerine.

    See this is where I disagree with you HRP... I think that black takes away from the beauty of the lines on a car... Dont get me wrong it does look good on some cars but a sexy curvy car like this... Black would just kill her... my opinion...

    We can all guess and all be wrong! I'd guess root beer over gold, but with candies, it's hard to guess. Best way would be to contact Lucky 7's, or get a color card from PPG or House of Color and pick what's close. LOTS of variations with different base coats, coats of candy, etc.

    In science black is the absence of color. In art it is a color,all colors mixed together....

    I am with HRP but I would add one more color chrome.
     
  18. I don't know what the base may be, but I see root beer with tangerine and gold pearl on top, but I'm not a custom painter.

    I agree, lucky 7 does a great job with all of their work specifically this shoebox and the 49 chevy they did called "devils lettuce" which also has an awesome "mystery color". ImageUploadedByH.A.M.B.1396930120.574723.jpg

    I agree, this "must" be a candy. Rootbeer is Close :) But whid candy its hard to tell, you can change the colour a lot whid the basecoat and how much candy you have on the car.
    But it looks Amazing and is a very nice work from Lucky 7 :)

    HRP only had one crayon when he was a kid, a black one. All I know is every time I see a photo of that shoebox up in photo coverage of an event it knocks my socks off. It comes real close to making me want to change from maroon for my truck this tiime.
     
  23. It was black.....

    Sweet Brown got more than a paint job at Lucky 7, but to answer the original question, the color is another custom blend concocted by Marcos Garcia...

    Looks like a fine poly in the base vs flake. I always liked how dark kandy plays with highlights and Mr. Garcia nailed it. Very kool...

    Ford offers a color on their newer cars called "Kodiac Brown". IMO it would look bitchin on a custom or sled.
