    I really like white top the best, so it keep it clean from getting road dust like bottom one do.

    I'd have to go with the paint scheme on the TOP, only because the road dirt will show up more on the white and it would be a mamma-jamma to keep clean. [JMHO]

    Absolutely the bottom one(with a better fitting trunk lid of course.)

    To: azopelnut,-----I have no real preference, but I believe the lower combo would look 100% better if the trunk insert wasn't two-toned white. (Leave trunk solid red) Just My opinion

    I know the top looks like Snowcap White which I prefer, but actually you can see a touch of the Baby Blue Color at the front, I think it has too much Sun on it.

    What two colors are you planning to use? That would be the first thing I'd need to know in answering your original query.

    But, based on the images that have been posted thus far, how about the paint division that appear in Andy R.'s posts, but using white (or even better cream) on the roof with the "rootbeer" color that appears on the finned Hawk you originally posted? I'm not sure if that was a stock Stude color for that make model, so perhaps that would rule it out for you.

    That is a Great '56 Power Hawk Pic Andy.

    It looks a lot like the '57 Glendale Green over the Turquoise Green, but if they are 1956 Colors they would be called Glenbrook Green and Seaside Green and slightly different.

    It looks very good, I just would not paint the Tail light Housings, when you have a car that close to original, I would not mess it up.

    This Car is missing it's drip rail Mouldings that were used on Two-Tones however.

    Great observation, Rich!
    I never noticed that narrow trim line below the rear window before, but it looks great.



    Link to a red and white one (resolution too large to repost).

    Actually I don't see how you could do either one. You don't have Fins like the '57 Silver Hawk in the top Pic, and you do not have the Mouldings on the Sky Hawk Hardtop.

    If your Car was originally a Two-Tone, it should have the Roof Paintline Moulding below the rear window though.

    Air Force Blue Metallic with a Snowcap White roof would be my choice.

    "White over red - pilot ahead" & "red over white - fishing tonight" is the easier way of learning stuff when taking the skippers exam...
    It's looking way coolest with red on top of the white, just to show you what a baaad taste I've got... The car loox lighter!
    (If you want the sun-heat to be less you should paint it bright yellow, & if you don't believe me, try!)

    I agree with the others. White top is better in Arizona but I should talk. Mine are Red, Green, and Brown. Hope to see it at Midnight At The Oasis in March
