Of all the color combinations available on the '56 Golden Hawk, the dark green and white is my favorite. Of course the second in no slouch either. Both are absolutely beautiful.

I'm not a green fan of any shade, but.... Those two are beauties! I guess I had an overload of avocado green Mopars when I was growing up! '56 GH's are my favorite Studes out of them all, and those two are a refreshing change from the normal pink and white that I usually see.
