    Default 1972 GS Factory colors

    I've seen the paint chips...but it's kind of hard to find pictures of cars with these paint jobs. Is there some thread I can't find in my searches that you guys know of that lists pictures of factory paints for cars?

    I'm really interested in the charcoal mist metallic, heritage green, burnished bronze, and vintage red.

    Here are a few more shots on different days and in different light. You will notice that vintage red in different light can take on a maroon, almost purplish hue(overcast day) , yet in other lighting it can be fairly bright.

    You can click on the link in my signature to see some photos of my car, which is burnished bronze. There's a hi-res photo of it on wikipedia as well. If you want more photos, just send me your email.

    I am also interested in seeing a fresh Heritage green paint job, I am torn between that and vintage red
