I got these color charts in an email from Sascha in Germany who has a 1700 GT. Now that I have the original palette to choose from, I am rethinking the color I should paint the car. It needs a lot of body work so a light color would be best. It looks to have originally been white and later repainted to red. I’m not interested in red, having had a number of red cars over the years. I like the idea of white, but my cousins GT is white. I go on about light blue and gray Alfa’s, maybe this is my chance to paint something one of those. I have alternately decided on light gold, metallic dark dray and metallic light blue, so maybe I should settle on one of those. Tough decision. What do you think? Post a comment with the color from the charts below you would paint a Glas GT if you were about to paint one.
Perlgrau and Aquamarin are pretty sweet.
I like the astral white, metallic blue and graphite gray. Did Alfa do a Giulietta color chart like this with cars in silhouette?
Of course, once I decide on a color I have to try and match it from modern paint samples or mixing. If discussions I see about color on the Alfa BB and other places are any indication, it will be difficult. Maybe I’m already back around to painting it white…
