I want to know what 'Black Cherry' really looked like. Does anybody have a picture of original 1950-51 'Black Cherry' paint (or repaint)?
I have a 1951 color chip page with 2 reds: Comanche Red (my car's original color) and Black Cherry. The Comanche Red chip matches my firewall and appears to be an accurate rendition of the actual paint color. The Black Cherry chip is really dark (almost black) and I'm wondering if it's very accurate for how dark Black Cherry was. When I look online the image of the Black Cherry chip also looks very dark like my chip.
I like the dark paint chip a lot so I'm hoping it's accurate. I want the color to be really dark or else I will just repaint with Comanche Red. I don't want a Purple car.
BTW, I saw a Black Silverado pickup on the highway that seemed to have a subtle blue-red tone. Was it just my eyes or does Chevy have a color similar to my Black Cherry chip?
