Hagerty has good taste in colors. But, Cudas were not Plum Crazy. Cudas were In-Violet. It's like Hugger orange and Carousel red.

I believe the same color was called something different for the Corvette in 69. funny that "Hugger Orange" is the one that stuck.

Corvette colors back in those days were named after famous race tracks...

Joe, did I ever tell you how that happened? No? Here's the short version. Since high school I was going to buy red. Then I saw HO and thought, hmm, haven't got the kahonna's for that color, I'll stick with red. Then the day came and I drove to the dealer to place the order. As I pulled into the lot I said to myself, "self, screw it, get orange" Ta da!
That turned out to be the long version.

I used to own a '70 Grabber Blue Mach I (& wish I still did). That color with black accents was the perfect color combo for that car.
