Final mechanicals have been completed on my '69 FWB, and now it's time to begin the long-awaited paint and body work. The car will remain 1969 color 26--Athenian Blue. The decision is about the vinyl top. The car currently has a white top in an incorrect grain and seam pattern. The combination with the blue is striking, but it's not a standard factory choice on this model for this year. My car originally had a blue top, according to the body data plate (the other standard factory choice with Athenian Blue is black----blech!)
So, I'd welcome opinions. Blue, or white? Here's some pics to give you an idea of what the car would look like either way.
This is a 1970 model, but you get the idea. Blue is a lot easier to care for, but it does make the car look very formal. Then again, it is a formal car.
This is my car as she is now. The white makes the car look smaller IMO, but also "happier". White's a bitch to keep looking good, though.
So, fellow forum denizens, what shall it be? Blue? Or White?
