68 shocks

I am in the process of doing some front end work prior to rolling the HCS out of the garage for the spring and I need to replace the front shocks. I am not having a problem finding a replacement or even finding the original part #; however, I am having a problem figuring out what the original color was. Currently mine are black. The easily available ones are typically monroes and are yellow.

Thanks in advance for the help.

I found a spraycan of Dupli-Color that matchs the original color pretty close, its DSGM 286 Camel M
Hope this helps.

Re:68 shocks

Craig,
As far as the color, I believe your shocks are original. In every recognition guide I have, the 68 shocks are BLACK.

Krylon Semi Flat Black #1613 is probably the closest and easiest to match the engine bay from what I've seen and heard. I dunno if it would be the "correct" paint for your shocks though. Were they glossy, satin, or flat, would be the operative question.
