Title: 62 Chrysler Paint Colors------SNOTTY!
Post by: Steve on September 03, 2010, 04:02:04 PM
The good news about the car is I can start with the painting.  I don't have much to remove as far as trim is concerned, so I am going to dig right in to the front section and doors.  If I get all that painted before winter, I'll be able to drop the engine and trans in this coming spring.  The engine is done, I just have to swap it from the 65.
 
Here is my dilemma.  The car was originally Willow Green.  It was repainted Black and White.  But Chrysler didn't have a black in 62.  It's easier to keep it black,then to go back to the green.  Some of you may remember, I had a 62 Newport in that color.  My dad had one in Dawn Blue, and I loved that color.   Since I have toi redo the whole car, in and out, I was thinking of the Blue with a white roof.  The interior is gray cloth.  Iwas going to try to keep the color year correct, but no black

The Dawn blue is pretty, but the Willow is nice too!

The Sapphire Blue Poly would be different.  Put that on with a white roof.  That's pretty close to the electric blue on the 68

Go with Black Cherry - and get rid of the white top.  I know the top color is factory, but how many times do you want people to ask you if it's a Cop Car?  (I got that all the time!!!)

Am I reading the chart wrong?  Isn't BB-1 at the bottom of the left column "Formal Black"?
I do like the Dawn Blue too.

I'll be damned.  Good eye Dan.  I thought there was no black.  They just don't have the chip on the page.  I completely missed that.

I didn't see that n"BB" note either but I thought that black had to be there....  ??
 
I don't know if it's called anything else, but Black Cherry is black with a coat of clear red on the top.  Looks black in the dark, but when the sun hits it - oh yes!!

I am trying to decide if I should change the color or leave it black right now.  They looked good in the pastels, well I thought so. . .
 
Snotty, I left you a message in the General BS thread with the lst of missing parts.

In my opinion, it looked great in the "before" pictures. I vote keep it that way.

Thanks guys.  I'm not in for extra work so Black is a good possibility.
 
However, Black is going to be a real pain.  The body has to be perfect.  Planning on base coat, clear coat.  The paint on there now must have been put on with a puddy knife.  It's way to thick.  (http://www.moparfins.com/forum/smileys/smiley36.gif)

Ok, Steve, I've hesitated to write this because it's your car.  But, here's what I always wanted to do with that car color/interior-wise but never did.
 
Body Color: Black Cherry - even the top.
 
Interior: Alternating black and white leather and cloth.  White cloth where people would sit, black leather where they did not.   The white would be on the seat bottom and seat backs of both seats, running length-wise over the top of each seat.  So, if you can picture it in your mind, each seat would have black ends and centers, with white in-between.  (Black, white, black, white, black going accross each seat. 
 
I wanted to keep this motif even to the package tray and to the window.  The door panels would ahve also been white and black running in horizontal patterns.
 
The trunck would have been the same with white patches matching the pattern on the trunk lid.  (That was a firenbd's idea and I liked it.)
 
There you go.  Always had that in mind but as you know, never did it.

MMMMM  OK Scott.  But the Black Cherry would look good with the gray interior too.  I didn't want to deviate too much from the original appearance of the car.  Since I have to dismantle it, I could go any color really.  I was actually thinking of the medium blue, Saphire,  similar to the 68 Fury.  Look at the chart on page one and see if you like the Cordovan.  Is that what you like?  I like the Embassey Red too.  But the 65 is that color

I just don't know how this would look in the Embassey Red.  The Newpies and 300's have less chrome

My darling, Elaine,  picked Saphire Blue with a white top.  I did not prompt her.  Since I need a place to sleep. . . . .  Saphire Blue it is.
