Need some feedback on  the 2 tone colors (RED and BLACK)   for my 59 dodge  custom royal 4drht.  what are your preferences in these colors with red and black interior ?   or just a Beautiful solid black .  not looking into all red at all.

Two tones are what really sets these '50's cars off IMO. So many nice looking colors to choose from in '59. If going with red/black, I would choose Coral over Poppy. Ruby could look good too, but makes it too dark IMO. I think red with black roof & bottom is much better than the other way around. If you don't mind mixing it up a little, Pink & Black would look really nice. They had two shades of pink, Rose & Biscuit. You can also reduce the black shade to a Pewter instead.

the oem seats and door panels are already finished in red /black with cloth inserts .... so  exterior colors will have to work around that .

I vote red main body with black roof, fin, and lower.

59 Dodges are already over-the-top. Add on all the CRL trim and
it is just plain excessive. Toning it down a little only makes it look
better. The black as an accent does a good job of this, giving the
car a more "formal" balance to the overall design.

One good thing about the red roof is it won't be as hot during the summer as a black one.

Imo a black roof looks always better, since it makes the roof look sleeker.

Are you set on Ruby or would you consider Coral?  I like the black roof scheme too.

it's a hard toss up for sure . but the coral is out . I do think the red body with black accents is more attractive , but is it too much with the red black interior ? seats are re-upohlstered already ! maybe not .

I also vote red main body with black roof, fin, and lower.

It makes the car look more distinguished / stand out more.

Imagine you are on stating on a street watching cars go by in the late 50s / early 60s.

The above combo just catches your eye more than the reverse.

If you are worried about it being too much, you could go with a standard two-tone or special two-tone instead of the deluxe.  If either of those options were in consideration, I'd probably go with a black main body / roof.

Another option could be contrasting the red with a silver or gray. In my opinion, I think the subtle contrast is more pleasing than the high contrast black (or white) that is typically seen.
