...in the same way you might if this 1/18 BOS 1958 Cadillac was painted in sunburst yellow with dark plum stripes and a root beer top.

To me, this BOS color is that bizarre. But I concede, it certainly was possible..... even back in '58.

Keep in mind, however, that GM offered factory Cadillac limousines up until 1977/78. And they did have standard paint codes. Something different could certainly be arranged but most often that meant sending it out then returning it to the dealer.
