This roofline was made to fool us into thinking it was a convertible
And there was a vinyl roof covering option that simulated the canvass top on those converts. My choice here would be a Roman Red with a white top. And next a Nassau Blue with a black top. Or maybe blue if the factory did that. Also clean the car body from the extra mirror on the right side and the bumperettes on the back and certainly the extra antenna roots on the rear fenders. Keep these cars as clean as they really were in their day. These cars were stunning. And don't forget Goldvargs are now a new standard the others must attain. Don't load up the bodies with trinkets. You don't need that.
