Pics of dark green trucks....

I am getting ready to lay some color on the 71 and was thinking about painting it a shade of dark green. I seen a 72 that was a dark green with a little metallic in it and he said it was the original color?? Also, I have a 71 cab that I bought a few years back thats been stored, I drug it out to use on this project and its got a very similar shade of green on it, it has been re-painted once so I am not sure if this was an original color.

You guys have any thoughts you could share?

Jason

Re: Pics of dark green trucks....

I don't know much about the stock colors, but I've seen a few dark green trucks on here and I think they're gorgeous. I've considered changing mine from the lighter to the darker green. Good luck!

Re: Pics of dark green trucks....

Here's mine it's a metallic green put out by Ford called, "Forest green Metallic". I need to get the engine back in and get the hood back on so I can start crusing. A wash and wax won't hurt either.

Re: Pics of dark green trucks....

Sweet, thanks for the info Premium72!

I am thinking a bit darker than yours though, which the color on the cab I have was a shade or two darker as well. I just want to be a little different, originally I wanted to paint the truck black and use a red interior but I see alot of black and red out there...... thinking the original green would give it a touch of character and nostalgia...

Re: Pics of dark green trucks....

I like that dark olive metallic. Mine was originally med olive but I like the darker color. Not sure what color I am going to paint it when the time comes.

When you do get home is that paint code 2207 or 2206?

Re: Pics of dark green trucks....

Here's one of my favorite dark green ones on the board. It almost looks black. This truck belongs to BCanini (I think that's his username) I know his name is Brian!

Re: Pics of dark green trucks....

Here's a pic of the factory olive that's underneath the blue someone obviously laid on with a brush (they painted over everything except inside the hood and the cab). I'm actually considering going back with the olive or dark olive myself. Initially I was all about going with medium blue, but there seem to be quite a few people out there already with the same idea

Sorry, not the best pic, but this was handy:

Here's a link with the original paint samples, choose chevrolet truck and then your model year:

Re: Pics of dark green trucks....

here is my 71 Super it is a little darker than the factory dark olive. I had this truck painted 14 years ago, so I'm not sure what the paint code is but talk to a good paint suppler and they can hook you up.

Re: Pics of dark green trucks....

Thanks guys.... there are some sweet looking trucks in this group!

I have to admit that the green and white combo looks pretty good too. I had originally planned to shave all the moldings but then I was thinking about just using the lower moldings with the black inlay...

Thanks again!
Jason
