If you cannot find the car you want in the color you want then your options are pretty limited.

The only caveat I have on color changes is that they imply damage repair. Make sure you have documentation to support otherwise. A photo album of the paint change will add value to the car. It shows enthusiasm and pride in the project as well as condition of the body.

Folks don't seem to give a thought about $10,000+ engine mods that see zero return, so what's different about a color change paint job? If she is a keeper strip the car to the tub and have at it. Been done a gazillion times right here on the board with stunning results.
