Sergio, the WMCE '59s are gold and medium blue, similar to your prototypes
shown although the blue on your wagon is a good bit lighter.

A white over Sierra Copper Bonneville Safari is shown in the '60 Pontiac brochure and it is very attractive. The copper is different from your gold one, which is the same color as the WMCE '59.

Colors I'd suggest that you look at and consider include Sierra Copper, as opposed to the gold color, or any of the following, either in solid colors or with a white roof: Coronado Red, Fairway Green, Berkshire Green, or Richmond Gray. You can see them on the Auto Color Library chart. I don't think the gray would look good in a solid scheme, but with a white top would look great.

Those wagons were big vehicles, and breaking up the solid expanse of paint by contrasting the roof color made them appear less massive, in my opinion. White roofs were popular in warm-weather areas, too, because that's a lot of steel roof and air-conditioning was not standard equipment then.

Just some things to consider. The Safaris look very good, as I said before, and I look forward to their release.
