    Had to make sure the kids were going the right way and needed to become re-employed because of a company maintenance company take over. Now its time to get the GS out of the mouth balls LOL!!

    Al,

    I am doing a full frame off restoration of a 1972 Stage 1 car. Originally, my car was a paint code 48 (Hunter Green) with a medium Green Vinyl top. Is your 72' Hunter Green or is it Heritage Green? Also, is your vinyl top a green top or a black top? (hard to tell from the photo).

    Thanks, I would like to complete my car as close "as built" as possible and am always looking for similar cars. I haven't seen too many Green 72's.

    The 72 GS was painted a 1970 Sherwood Green and has a matching color vinyl top. The hood vents have been painted to match the body color (correct would be black). The other thing is the head light doors are left chrome (correct would be dark argent around the head lights).
    I plan on repainting this GS 455 and looking to go with the same 1970 GS Sherwood Green and looking to go with a black vinyl top.

    Al,

    Love the color! Thanks also, for the two comments on "correctness" (hood vents & head light surrounds). I have been assembling a component finish spreadsheet and will add these two to my list. I am trying to make this restoration as exact as possible, recognizing all of the known and unknown variables when these cars were built.

    One other thing to note, the hood molding, 72 Skylarks had two different styles, one straight across at the ends (used on Skylark Customs only) and the one that turned down at the ends used on Skylark, SportWagon, and GS.
