Vintage burgundy. Maybe a couple of ghost stripes if you want to jazz it up a little. Too many white w/ blue stripes out there now, not enough burgundy.

Put a parchment interior in it. That would be very classy looking.

Ditto

Why not add black stripes or other color and fresh wheels? Paint looks good in picture.

The paint might look good in the picture, But in real life it has seen better days.

It is chipped and has cracks all over it.

Vintage burgundy is not seen much. Besides you will not need to redo the door jambs and interior. Ghost stripes would add to the overall color.

All the jambs and interior will be repainted even if its going to be the same color....


My wife tells me the burgandy is a "grandpa" color....

Vintage burgandy is visually more appealing and "cool" than many other of its contemporary colors despite not being seen much. I'd keep it and not change the color much.

If you want to change, why not do a more modern rendition of paint code X (vintage burgandy)? Maybe something with a *little* more red or even something like royal maroon (68 color)? I like vintage burgandy (have it on my 66), but I am also needing a repaint and am looking around at updated colors.

I vote Vintage Burgundy or some adaptation of it. BTW, my Grandpa's always seemed to drive Blue or White cars :p

Tungsten, have you considered a new color like the 06 Mustang's signalfire metallic? This looks burgandy, but has a lot more red in it, and a lot less "purple". My neighbor just got an 06 Mustang GT with this color and it is pretty!

I'de have to vote burgandy, you can always add some white pearl stripes to it. I almost went with Burgandy but whent with Bernsteinrot it's a Mercedes color. It's almost burgandy but with metallic flake. Ill post a pic when it gets it final coat.
