Some fine folks at the La Palma meet told me I could send the serial number of my Champion to the museum in South Bend to find out what the original color was. Can anybody tell me how to go about this?

I think that you have to request a production order from the museum to get that information, which costs about $40 (?). Before you do that, look under your dash at the underside of your glovebox. If you're very lucky, your car's original paint code sticker will be there.
