Pebble Beige anyone?

Anyone out there have any photos of a "68 Pebble Beige GT/CS? I'd like to see what mine will look like if I paint it back to its original color.

I wonder, how many were made in this color? Hmmm? (I'm taking this moment and relishing it- do you know why??)

<<raising hand high>> I know,I know!!! (but I can't tell yet)....

Pebble Beige makes me think of the color of women's foundation makeup color. Kinda tan, kinda.....ugh!!

Paul.

p.s. I like the idea of "my blood" RED stripes on it when it's "Seattle Goth" black.

Interior trim code? 8RO1C150193? Maybe it's #1631-A. That's the number beside the '8' paint code exterior. The inside is black, so I'm thinking the exterior stripe should be black when painted back to PB? Right?

What color should I have the stripes for the black exterior? Would black stripes even show up? Right now I have Hertz gold GT/CS stripe kit. I'm leaning towards white stripes because the Master says so.

What do y'all think?

I have always liked the red stripe on the black. Kinda reminds me of a Black Widow. Mike

There is NO question in my mind. You have the absolute best color combination already in place. Black/Black/Gold Stripe. "It don't get no better'n that." The ONLY thing I would consider changing would be to install the Deluxe Interior (Black, naturally).

Her interior trim code is 2f for saddle standard bucket seats, mine is too. She`s got her Marti posted on the other thread. Amy, I think you should change your car back to the original colors. Here are some non-GT/CS pics for you.

Amy, your exterior paint code number is 6 not 8.

Oh my. All of this well intentioned advice. I thought the original intent was that Amy wanted a Black C/S. True? The car is just out of the paint shop. True? What's with the color change at this stage of the game? Please don't say that it's not the color it was "born" with. Some folks believe that's the only true method of restoration. I don't. I say build it the way you want it, and enjoy it. Door tags can be modified to reflect the car's present color/combos. Even if you show it in MCA, they don't ask for or require the Marti Report to verify the car's configuration at birth. Make it any color you like. Just be prepared to spend $8K or more to do it right. My 2 cents worth.

That black paint on Amy's CS is pretty nice...and to take it back to PB would be quite a job. I think while she's working on the mechanical parts...it should stay black.

I find that gold stripes tend to make people think that it's a clone. It's a non-stock color, and although it might look neat, it "isn't right". The white stripes are so stark that you can see the car a LONG ways away.... As old as these cars are...I'd stick with stock stripe colors in a traditional sense of restoration.

I've seen the red stripes, too. Quite nice! Amy--go get some red and white electrical tape at a hardware store, and try out places on the car, to see what you think. Just three foot sections...just as a test.

Tell me about the 'deluxe interior', Neil. Remember I am a student now in this school of '68 GT/CS. How is it different than standard interior?
