The shade of green you have there has a little too much olive to it, but it is going to look really good that way. I have decided to paint my '58 New Yorker the same color with either a white or dark green roof.


GREAT choice!

Where does "Willow" Green come from? The 1957 Dodge light green was "Misty". (EDITED from "Minty" - my bad )



I think this one was called "Penderie" green:

its pretty similar to the mint greens, off the 58 Desoto.

I actually like the 56 Dodge mint I think about the same.

there were so many mint colors, nice subtle shade, i think every manufacturer had one.

Mike,

If you are considering green, this is what your car would look like with the Forest Green/Misty Green combo. That is how mine came, so I had it repainted those colors just last year.

that's very cool but I'm already onto the white base, Got the firewall done and bought the paint.

That might be to "minty", that is cool though

Mike,

I can't believe that "Misty Green" isn't your favorite color; that color shouts 1950s! But here is what green/white would look like then. I couldn't find a Coronet, so a Custom Royal will have to do.

i like the light "top" color and lower dark.

Also i want a less jarring 2nd tone. White and mint/willow green it is. I'm hunting for the willow/mint now.

Since your car is far from stock, what about a mint color with a little white, silver, or green pearl in it? Just thinking out loud.

That would look good if you also put pearl in the white. Otherwise, it would be weird to have a solid white with pearl green.

I already bought the white. so yeah I probably wont go pearl. It would be nice to pearl the whole car.

Pearl painting is more cumbersome also any gnats or dirt nibs cause problems, you cant just buff out and refill pearl paint, you need a pro booth for that. I will shoot this sucker in my garage.

I will sand and buff the paint out.

this was from back when I was working the lower quarter, i actually redid the pass side, didnt like it at all.  My lower quarter panel lip was still good and i tried to butt weld it but to much mess... I flanged and spot, roll it under the trunk drop and spot there also, nice and super clean.

Now itll get paint also. then spray on sound proofing. Lizardskin.

It's moving along pretty fast now. I don't relish that clean-up job on the inside of the roof. I need to do that too and am avoiding it.

This is my "Secondary" interior color. 

The "ultra" carpet from ACC is great, I want to put it in my house, comes with a nice thick backer already glued in. Seriously nice and 190$ shipped.

I will see how it goes against the willow green, if i like a more mint blue or the misty green i will go there, i dont want baby blue though.
