Finally posting pics of my 67 Conv project

I've been a member here for a while, but finally getting around to introducing myself and my project. Just completed, she's a ground-up "restification" on an early production '67 Convertible. Original RR paint code with black deluxe interior, custom mix pearl red, Haartz cloth top, full Hotchkis suspension, crate 350/turbo 350, 18" one-off Rushforth wheels, etc. What do you think?

Re: Finally posting pics of my 67 Conv project

Amazing! ! also like how you left off the spoilers. My 68 vert did not have them and I was very tempted to add them when repainting. Now I am very glad I did not. Many people comment the car looks much sleeker without them.

Re: Finally posting pics of my 67 Conv project

Thanks for the kind comments. I agree with the comment about the spoiler. Mine truly stands out because of this. Also, everyone who sees it is amazed by the paint. I drove my wife and family crazy (not to mention my painter) for at least 4 months testing paint samples, trying to get the color I had in my head to come out in paint! I think we achieved the goal.

It's been a 4 year project, so really glad to be able to finally show it off. Here are a couple more photos.

Re: Finally posting pics of my 67 Conv project

I think I have looked at this thread a dozen times a day since it was posted! Love that color! Did the painter custom mix himself or is there a formula that he used? I have a 68 convert. that I think I want red...I like that red!

Re: Finally posting pics of my 67 Conv project

Thanks for the compliment. Glad you like it. The color is a custom mix that I created. Took me about 4 months of obsession, driving my wife and family crazy. But I just couldn't find the color that was in my head. This mix hit me in the middle of the night and when my painter sprayed it out, we both knew we hit jackpot!

Paint is amazing. What did you do differently than a standard base coat/clear coat??

Re: Finally posting pics of my 67 Conv project

What is a totally awesome ride, very distinctive, especially that red. I think that is the best red I've ever seen on a car. Not all colors work on all cars but that red just "fits" and looks right. Congratulations! With the full hotchkis suspension in a convertible, is it a chore to drive or an absolute pleasure? Just curious since I have a '67 vert myself and a shelf full of hotchkis parts to install.

Re: Finally posting pics of my 67 Conv project

Great looking car, I like the color too, It does reminds me of the paint on my old 67, which was supposed to be bolero red though, Hard to tell on a monitor I know. Is it darker than bolero?

My 67 convert build in progress:
