Re: Back to original.
In my earlier post I said how the dealership did a complete repaint on my 69 Chevelle SS that I ordered in Olympic Gold from the factory. I didn't mention I had them clear coat the car back then also which made the color pop even more. Today my 71 Malibu is in the factory color it came in of Cotton Wood Green. I can honestly say I hated this color green when these cars were new. They just looked so dull looking. In later years I went to a car show and saw a Chevelle in the Cotton Wood Green and you could tell it was clear coated because the paint also popped on the car and stood out because it was different. Fast forward to 2012 I was looking for a new toy and I found my Malibu, it had all the good stuff in it and guess what it was Cotton Wood Green. This car is clear coated too and I'm surprised at how many have complimented on the color and it's rarity on the car. It's funny how just clear coating a car can make the color pop so much.
71 Malibu, Cottonwood Green, 396 BBC, AutoGear M22W 4 speed, 12 bolt 3:55 posi.
