picked up this 1969 last week. interior is almost perfect. body straight with the exception of a few minor blemishes. runs great after new plugs, new gas, battery, and points. lowered it a few inches and been driving it all over town. fun car

i like the patina but the wife wants it white. undecided.

after lowered, stripped vinyl and painted top factory green with a ton of white pearl.

Really cool old Cadillac! :thumbsup:
I'm "Mr. White" around here so I'm with the Mrs. on that one.:lol:

Until then I'd look for some baby moons for the center cap! Even a rusty set if you found them cheap and sprayed them black.:noidea:

:welcome5:

So thats the exact factory color? Is it something like palmetto something or another? If so whenever I get mine in the body work/paint stage it is going to look sweet!

that is the factory green color but i added quite a bit of white pearl to the clear. i like the color kinda minty.

I didn't notice the paint on the roof, I change my vote, that color looks sweet!

If it helps with the Mrs. you can tell her the biggest lover of white Cadillacs on the forum thinks you should go with it!:lol:

I would go with the factory color with the white pearl like the top....then have stock caps and w/w/w and maybe if you know a pin striper have em go to town. I have michelin suv tires on my cadilla because Its sort of my winter car. It doesnt look pretty but,it also doesnt get stuck.

how was the area around the back window?
