They say that a picture is worth a thousand words, but I don't believe it. The car looks quite nice in these pics, but in 1000 words, I could describe every flaw. It looks red, but it is very orange. Will be changing the color to either red or blue.

It's orange and it's not growing on me. It badly needs paint and some minor work before that. Not sure what I'll do, but I think I will change the color.

Looks alot like the signal flare red convertible I had, except mine had a black top and styled steels. I am sure you'll enjoy it alot.

Don't forget, if you change colors you'll have to cut in the rest of the car. That means painting door jambs,complete trunk area, and under hood. The correct way to do that is to strip the car down to the shell. Are you sure you want to do all that extra work? If you don't like the color, change it to a more suttle shade of red. Then you won't have to mess with cutting it in.
I'm a purist at heart anyway. Changing colors on a classic car like that is sacreligious! Just my opinion. :p

No..........don't change the color. A fresh paint job will both darken the color a bit to it's original shade (less orange) and will take care of some of the cosmetics that you are associating with the paint. Signalflare RULES!!

I think it looks great in that color, I like the contrast between the top and the body, I don't think it would look as good in blue. My $02
