View Full Version : 1963 Orange/Bronze Daytona

07-06-2011, 06:26 AM
I recently saw a photo of an orange 1963 Daytona that was posted as from a car show.

I can't find the post and would really like to know what the color is so I can get mine painted the same.

Can anyone provide details, sorry I can't recall who sent the information.

Undoubtedly Jim Maxey's bright orange/bronze 1963 Daytona hardtop; almost a Kandy Kolor, it is so bright. ('Thought I'd introduce our younger members to the spelling concept of kandy kolors!)

Jim was at Springfield with the car and drove it all over the place. Search the many postings of Springfield 2011 photos and you'll surely find it. BP

That color might be Candy Apple Copper. Let us know what you find out. Jim's a great guy, and that is one of the meanest sounding Studebakers anywhere!

Thanks for the kind comments. The Lark belongs to my son, James. It is painted Fire Mist Orange metalic. Base-clear coat. Paint was purchased off e-bay and painted in my garage. Jim

I believe even the appropriate apparel option was marked on the build sheet! ;) :cool:
Super car, getting out and being driven. Proving grounds photo probably my favorite.

Is this color specific to that company or can it be obtained from Dupont or PPG? Just that I think it may be difficult to ship it to Australia when the time comes whilst the other companies sell their stuff here.

Beautiful color on that car, Jim!

I go back and forth on metallic colors. Naturally I prefer them, but worry about getting a good match on the inevitable future repairs. At least a solid color can be easily spotted in.

Saw this Lark in Springfield, and thought it was gorgeous!
