: Paint Help?

05-22-05, 11:03 AM
I have a 1987 Brougham that needs painted really bad. What I need to know is if there is any where I can find the color options that were orignial to this model year. The car right now is crappy brown w/ a brown vinyl top and tan interior. The top is still in really good shape so I don't want to spend the money to replace it. The interior is still in pretty good shape just some trim pieces that need to be replaced. I'm not sure if I want to stay with the original brown for the body color or go with something that will match both the top and the interior color. I would like to go with a nice dark green, but I'm not sure if it will look good with the the brown top. Any help would be great.

Dark green with a brown top looks better than you would think. I almost bought a 1995 Mustang that was hunter green with a tan top and interior. It was odd, but strikingly nice. The Caddy dealer can give you the original paint code for your car, and would probably have other options for color that were offered with that interior color. My local Caddy dealer is always happy to see me. :D

The original paint code is on the bottom of the trunk hatch on a sticker.

How about a color similar to my Fleetwood??? My top was originally brown. Look:
