Re: 1969 Chevelle SS Build
My own .02 is that I'd consider for purchase any car that was a color that was available from the factory for that car in that model year, regardless of whether it as original to that car. I would also have no issue with any of the reversible mods that you are doing. Once you paint a car a non stock for that year car, you are entering street rod territory, and finding a buyer at your price becomes all the more difficult. I also fall into the "its your car, do what you like category" , but you can't expect to reap top dollar at sale time (and there is always sale time, regardless of what we tell ourselves!) if you deviate. The more personalized a car is, the smaller your pool of potential buyers becomes.
edit, just looked at Lime Rock Green, it IS gorgeous!
It is a rare man who can count his own blessings and not mistake them for personal achievements.
