I just picked up a re-issue of the MPC "The Malco Gasser"

My question is:

What color is the car?

The Ditzler Color chart for a 1967 Ford Mustang list 4 blue colors

B 12876 Frost Turquoise

F 12854 Arcadian Blue

Q 12843 Brittany Blue Poly

W 13073 Clearwater Aqua Poly

After looking at photos of the car, it could be any one of them...

but I think it's either the Frost Turquoise or Arcadian Blue

any thoughts on which one it can be

Jameston at Scalefinishes has all of them available

thanx

When I saw it in 1967 at a car show in Chicago, It was light blue, but with a very coarse metalflake and fogging in dark blue around the wheel wells. It may have been a Ford color as a base, but it looked custom to me. Someone joked that it was "Easter Bunny Blue metalflake

I doubt it's a stock Mustang color. It appears to be a silver-blue in most photos with blue fogging around the wheel wells as mentioned above plus fogging around the door handles and a bright solid blue on the taillight panel. On Slixx' decal sheet they just call for Silver Blue.

GMP's diecast was more of a turquoise color and didn't look quite right.

Lots of good pics here: http://public.fotki.com/VincePutt/drag_racing/gassers/ohiogeorgemontgomer/

MCW has the color listed for the Malco as Light Metalflake Blue and in aerosol # 2631 Light Blue Metallic. That's what I ordered and that's what color I'm paintin' mine.
