At Orval’s Used Cars 655 Main Street in Delta, CO (970-874-5461), I saw these 3 FL cars, but there were many more (Non-FL) cars there as well.

The "56" Dodge is really a 1955 Dodge. I wonder why the white paint is so good compared to the rest of the car?

White paint absorbs less heat, which causes less crazing, so the surface below is more protected? Better quality paint? Non-white pigments in the paint promote more oxidation? All the white cars I’ve had seem to have paint that’s held up better in the Wyoming sun and heat.

I feel pretty confident saying that someone prepped and painted those areas on the Dodge and the Buick. Judging the condition of the rest of the car, there is just no way any factory paint would be that pristine.

The '57 Desoto is a Firesweep, which is an important distinction for folks looking for '57 Desotos.
