Always wondered how a 2dr wagon would look with a one piece back window - very cool.

Man = that's a big window! And it's flat glass judging by the reflection.

So all that's left is someone needs to build a no rear window van! Maybe even including the hatch.

And we need to see a pick up that done right to go full circle.

Thanks Robin - got your trailer painted yet so you can put that photo in this thread?

no sales this week so I could not afford to buy paint :cry:

I should have bought Ron's goon...the plan with the belted goon from the weeds was to build a 2dr panel with barn doors and moon windows strait off a 70s gm raper van

but I do like the look of the big window and mild box flair....is that a 620 hood?

It was supposed to be the robins egg blue but our Westco sucks at mixing paint to the codes. I actually liked the color better than the factory color though! haha

One of my cars actually had the code stamped into the radiator support, I think that was only in 68 then they went to the sticker.

mine was 562, "Turquoise" and then later called "Asian Blue" same code.

Cool, another bit of lore bites the dust! Although, I can't seem to find that color in the two charts I have, maybe it was for something else?

Dude on his phone ran a stoplight, no insurance either. Luckily Tim had un insured motorist. Need a front end if anyone has one.

Every 510 came with a colour code stamp on the rad support, often it's under one of the decals. If the stamp isn't there, suspect either that it's been filled during a previous paint job, or it's a replacement rad support.i have an OEM rad support in my pile O crap, and it's the only smooth one I've ever seen with no stamp.

Just some thoughts.
