    Hey y'all! Does anyone know how I can find out what the original colors for the '72 Chevelle Concours were?? I've looked on the internet, but can't really find what I'm looking for...:disagree:

    If anyone has any suggestions, that'd be awesome! Thanks! :anyone:

    :tiphat:

    Thanks, Behemoth!:) This does help! We'll most likely change the color from the original blue is it now, but we'd like to stay with a color that was original to those cars. :wave:

    Have a super day!:yahoo:

    As I understand....you are NOT going to paint the car in the original color. IF you were and/or IF you wanted to order a match from paintscratch or other paint places you would need the following for quality paint matching companies ...
    The paint code is good but they also require the RPO number and the VIN. Give them these and your match will be astounding.

    Kindred spirits. The family wagon tradition is alive and thriving. Here! Here! Wait till you get her all done and people start giving you the Thumbs Up! You'll never look at a new tupperware car again! :evilsmile:

    "Tupperware car"...perfectly said! Yep, cars nowadays can't even come close to the classics..they just don't make like that anymore, like everything else...it's sad, really. I am 42, and VERY nostalgic, my friends make fun of me, that I live in the 70's...but I have such awesome memories of those days..I feel very blessed to have been a kid when I was...and the cars are huge part of my memories! We had a '65 Oldsmobile, a '74 Torino, a '75 LTD..and I remember clearly, our neighbors '65 Mustang and station wagon..green with wood paneling. Not sure of the make or year, but a good guess is probably around a '73..most likely a Ford or Chevy. Sorry to ramble, I got caught in a memory... :oops:

    It sounds like you had a very idyllic childhood, very similar to mine in Los Angeles in the 50's and 60's (I'm 58). Your parents probably deserve a lot of credit for not allowing outside influences to affect the serenity of your environment. Some of your contemporaries arn't as fortunate......
