Chaps,

Need help on these 2 colors?

 

Downloaded, but no description for the color?

 

Got on 'oldride.com' for reference color, their charts don't seem accurate though,

 

I'm thinking Matador Red and Liberty Blue.....correct?

 

 

 

69-Pontiac-Judge-Hardtop-DV-09-AP-01_zps

 

69-Pontiac-GTO_Judge-DV-12-MM-01_zps0dd6

Ray, please disregard my original post. I misidentified the year GTO as a '70 instead of '69. The edited post has the correct information.

No worries thanks Bill ;)

 

Trying to be different with this project, Carousel Red seems to be the popular choice of colour when building this :mellow: !

IIRC the '69 GTO Judge was only available in Carousel Red (which really looks orange) when they were first available, but later in the model year other colors were offered.

Casey You are correct about the Carousel red on the Judge. Early in the production run that was the only color available and that is why you see most of the Judges in that color. If you go to a auto paint store they will show you that the formulation for Carousel red is the same as Chevy Hugger orange. GM at it's best. You are more likely to find premixed Hugger Orange than Carousel red.

Check me if I'm wrong here, but I seem to recall reading that the first  production run of the "Judge" was in Carousel Red only--other colors became available later in the model year.

Thanks guys, appreciate the feedback on this subject!

 

Like I said, it will be another colour, not Carousel Red, really like the look of the Matador Red :wub:  ;)
