Here are a few I have saved for reference. I, too, was thinking on a green. Hawthorne Green on top with a Galopigose (spelling) Green on bottom of '53 Buick side trim is what I am shooting for. Hawthorn Green a stock '50 Ford color, very dark like Emerald Green (last pic).
...And if you call in the next 20 minutes, cause we can't do this all day...

Its a '50 Crestliner. All that trim is bone stock. It even still has the big $$$ steering wheel in it yet(no horn ring though :().

Yes now that you mention that I recognized the side trim, I just couldn't place  what car that came from, that's why I was thinkin' it had been customized. That's has to be rare, I thought Crestliner  started in `51 ??

Here's a '50 and a '51.  All that chrome was stock and even the vinyl top was standard.  I think that was the first true vinyl top which was also on a Merc. model.

I remember a guy in Devils Lake had one in pristine shape and drove it to work every day into the '70s. I've always liked them.

Thanks Jake, there is a difference between the `50 and `51 side trim, something I did not know. I like the `50 the best., as for the vinyl top, not so much!!

Are thouse the right wheel covers?? I asume thery are, have never seen that style before.

They're sharp looking cars, and i wouldn't mind one of those steering wheels, but I still like my pink one better!

The shoebox is already getting naked.  I took out the back window last night and started grinding off the paint... There's lots of shiny sheetmetal under there!  Pics up later tonight.
