Hate to be the Troll Under the Bridge, but I've seen a purple vert at a local Ford Show and it was ugly to the point of embarrassment. When we bought my son's 68 GT, the owner, granddaughter of the original owner, was going to restore it and paint it purple!!!! I think the car smiled when we towed it away! But... this is your car after all, do what you want, just consider the resale value down the road.
