    was that a thing in general or on big cars? ive seen the black roof on a 72 but not a white? how would you think it would look on a green car vs black.

    White painted roof on cars back in the day was quite common. I know of a '68 GTO clone with verdoro green body + black vinyl roof. I had a friend who owned a ''67 Beaumont with white body + flat black roof that whomever painted it (not from the factory) almost made it look like a vinyl roof.

    ive seen the 72 lesabre and a 73 catalina with gloss black but ive never seen gloss white. didnt know if it was available and how it looks. ive seen cars from 60s with it and my 66 was originally a goldish color with a white roof but ive never seen a 72 big car or skylark even with a white painted roof just white vinyl on a electra.

    I had a 70 red skylark with a white painted top back in the day!

    Here is a photo of my cortez gold 71 GS350 4 speed car with black painted top and still wearing it original 50 year old paint!

    I have a '61 LeSabre 4dr. hdtp. that's a Metallic Green with a painted White top from the factory. I think it looks pretty sharp.

    How much trouble would it be to do a (rush) paint job on a '70 GS? I'm not in any hurry & wouldn't want to ask much of anyone's time but you seem quite good/proficient @ it.

    I like the white but beauty is in the eye of the beholder.

    Yes, PS. I have the software and am OK w/it. My kids (my daughter esp.) is pretty good w/it I think. I should really have her take a crack at it. Pic posted here might be too low of resolution? It may also need to be pieced together unless I can find the "right" pic to start w/. Odd car & I'd really like to see what it'll look like "done." It's Seamist Green w/a Sherwood Green painted top. Total stripper but did come with "deluxe wheelcovers" (aka volcanoes) and whitewalls which other than replacing the whitewalls w/redlines is the only way I can picture it done. Seemingly it'd be easier if the pic started out w/the correct wheelcovers, even if w/whitewalls.

    Would that be considered "two tone paint"? In '72 there were 124 GS's produced with "D99 two tone paint".
