    We've pretty much settled on Midnight Blue for the roof and trunk Creamy white for the rest. Again suggestions and pictures would be great.
    You guys and gals are the GREATEST!!!

    Of course it is your car and you can do anything you want, but it you want it to look good to the trained eye and not just to the great unwashed masses, then go with the options the factory used.

    resale value will be increased as well, if you go with factory colors.
    Can you tell me what color the gold is on my Air Cleaner,Valve covers and oil fill cap. I'd like to stay with the original colors. Nothing is yellow on the engine

    Thanks a lot. Barry

    I think Olds gold is THE color to use on engines. Looks great! (especially with aluminum heads!)

    The 2bbl Bearcat intake was Alberta Blue (like Ford Blue). The 4bbl Passmaster intake was black. The 4 bbl oil bath was gold. Sounds like fun. Good luck.

    The colors that You're thinking of using sound good, and are actually fairly close to original. Think I'd go blue on the intake also. And the Olds Gold on the air cleaner if You're going with the stock one.
