  • What's that color?

    I was looking at a Wagonaire article in Collectible Auto from 06. There was a picture of a 65 that was a dark red, almost maroon; I really like that color! I don't have chips for 65, and Autocolorlibrary.com only goes to 64.

    Anyone know if that's a correct Stude color, and if so what is it?

    Someone will know, wish I could help...ebay had a 64-65 combined chart, but didn't show any chips. Not sure if it was a 64 color, too. I remember my neighbor's brand new 1964 Avanti in that color. Really sharp with black interior. Here's a chance for you to always know that year's colors, Bob:

      Bordeaux Red, perhaps?

        Bob - I assume you mean this colour?

          No, it looks darker than Bordeaux. Maybe I'll try my new scanner tonight if no one knows it.

            I've only seen one 1966 car with a colour the owner called "Plum". He advised me that it was a "proposed" 1967 colour, but then again he also advised me that his car was the last one built. I haven't seen it for 25 years.

            I'm afraid I don't have the colour chips for 1966, and I haven't got a picture of the car to post.

              OK, try this:



              Closest description I can think of is Cinnamon. Anyone recognize it?

                I may be wrong, but the wagon and Cruiser appear to be the same color. Shadowing in a photograph as well as age can check the color a bit.

                      No, they're clearly very different. Monitors can differ, which probably explains your viewpoint. The scan is from the Feb. 06 issue, and is in excellent condition with no fade or discoloring. When I look at the original next to an actual picture of Bordeaux there's a big difference. As I said it's a cinnamon color.

                      It may not be original for a 65, but it sure appears to be a perfect original or resto. The article identifies the owner as Brian Stouck. Anyone know him or the color?

                        Wonder if anybody thought any more about this and had any idea if that is in fact a Stude color...

                          Just speculating as I haven't seen the photo you refer to, but any Stude that looks that good has most likely been repainted. If this is a repaint, then it might be a non-Stude color, or a Stude color from another model year. Mount Royal Red is a shade darker, but it's 1966 color.

                            Dwain, it's the picture I posted 6 posts back! It's the magazine page scan. Here it is again:

                              The red I remember for the 65's was almost an orange color, not very red at all. I had some mixed for me in the 80's before California started messing with paint. I hope in the next couple weeks to have all my chips & Stude info at the new house, so I can be a bit more sure of my posts.
