60 coupe in the garage
« on: December 29, 2017, 02:31:30 AM »
Finally relieved my car fund of some extra cash and dove back into the Caddy scene yet again. Runs and drives with original drivetrain but need to make her pretty again.
Pompeii Red Metallic Series 62 with Fawn interior.
Not too bad a starry for a NY east coast car.

I'm sure I'll get flogged, but man that would look good as a hot rod with metallic red paint  :D

Man that car would look great stone cold stock with a fresh Pompeii Red paint job and a detailed engine compartment with the engine painted the correct Cadillac Engine Blue!!  Looks pretty darn good right now!

Daddy and 35,
Thanks for the praise. Iím looking to get her back into a fresh Pompeii (or close) red paint job, maybe lowered 1-2Ē with some wide whites. Keeping her stock as best I can. Once the bugs get ironed out with the mechanics Iíll get that engine compartment and motor looking sparkly again. Iíll keep updating when I can. Glad to have some money to put into this after selling my Ď55 Belair instead of the usual begging and borrowing!

GM used that color across the board back in those days for a few years, each division had its own name for it.  Chevrolet called it Honduras Maroon, I would imagine that any auto paint store worth its salt could mix that popular color for you in BC/CC or as you say, something very close.
