Question What Exterior Color w/Dark Green Interior

Hello Members,

I am colorblind and I need help with a exterior color pick. My wife has a '70 "SS" clone with the dark green interior. What original 1970 Chevelle color would look good with it besides Forest Green or Mist Green?

Anyone have any ideas?

Thanks, Jody

Re: What Exterior Color w/Dark Green Interior

According to my book you could get the following exterior colors with dark green interior:
Tuxedo Black, Cortez Silver, Classic White, Gobi Beige, Forest Green, Green Mist,Autumn Gold, Champagne Gold, and Shadow Grey

My '70 is Classic White and I think that color would go well with the green interior...IMO.

Mist Green or Forrest Green will look good with that interior. Personally, I would take a different approach and change the interior color since it's a clone. Then your exterior choice will not be so limited.

My buddy had a 70 monte with dark green int and white paint. It was originally that way and looked great.

Re: What Exterior Color w/Dark Green Interior

This is hard to pick an exterior color being colorblind! I appreciate all your insights. Anyone have any pics of the color combos?

Thanks, Jody

The 1971 Lime Green Metallic was actually the same as the 1970 Citrus Green Metallic, but since it came out after the new 1970 Camaro (Feb. 26th intro) it is not mentioned on availability charts. It was a new Camaro color that was also offered on all other 1970 Chevies except the Corvette. It was pretty uncommon on '70 Chevelles and other car lines as I recall (Pontiac also used it in late '70 production). I have seen a '70 in that color with dark green interior and it looked quite nice (the car was a repaint; originally it was Frost Green). Actually, the car was a California Malibu being parted out by Early Birds in Toronto in the late nineties.
