1946 Pontiacs and others, when WWII ended.

1946 Buick Super Sedanet

John, I hope the color combinations for 1946 are not too elaborate. It was right after the war ended, and all of the car manufacturers were in a hurry to get production rolling. Lots of cars were a single color and just a few subdued two tones were brought out. Colors became more elaborate as time went on, but not right at the very beginning. My friends Dad bought a loaded Pontiac Streamliner 2 dr fastback, which had lots of accessories, but he had to take what they were offering, and the car was solid Gray, with no whitewalls, and he paid top dollar in 1946. By 1948 bright colors were in. Just look at the beautiful two-tone combinations on the Frazer Manhattan. We can take artistic license on model cars, but we should try and be authentic at the same time. Just my thoughts on the subject.
Take me back to 1946. I would feel right at home!
