Howdy Sir,

Accentuates a SWB long hood's attributes nicely doesn't it? We just snarled around Mid Town in this car last night, it's Polar Blue used from 68-76 - pastel colors are sorta popular in these parts - what with the tan 2.6tt and now the green 3.4tt GT1 which is 49 Ford green. As a recreational painter, I'll be the first to admit weighing in heavily on any color selection discussions around here. We were at the annual Hot Rodder's Reunion and a customized 49 rumbled up and we both said that's it!

Also note my 1941 Indian Four's strong resemblance to that color as well. To keep it period correct, I researched the factory Dupont book and found a mid 30's Dusenburg color only a couple tint elements off from the 3.4TT crossed it to Glasurit and shot it in single stage PE. If you're into bikes/restorations, here's my build site.
