1956 Pontiac Chieftan

So...I decided to go with Dark/Light Green 2-Tone. I'll use the same Pearl Green I used on the 54 Chevy for the dark, bottom & rear. Took the Pearl White I used for the 54 top and added about 10 drops of Createx Pearl Green just to give it a green tint.
I like the light green, I think it looks good so far. The fun part will be masking off for the trim after the dark green. Not true colors for sure.....but... as long as it comes out nice it'll look great!

Honestly, I can't remember the exact way it was painted, single color or 2 tone. I remember it was Green, not a Dark Green. I just can't remember, that was nearly 50 years ago!!!
According to the color charts I'm looking at for 56 it would have been 1 of 4 Greens, and none of them were in combination w/White.
Hialeah Green, Glendale Green, Tarragon Green, & Kerry Green were the 4 greens used. They would have been 2 toned with black, grey or another green, no white.

Hi Spanjaard,
Well, I wish it was a model in the true sense and not a promo. But it will just have to do. I have not seen a "kit" of this car, although I'm pretty sure they made them back in the days. ?? If I can put on a good paint job, the chrome on the bumpers is like new, it should look good.
I do remember it was a sweet car when I had it nearly 50 years ago (196 8)!

Thanks Spanjaard,
Come to think of it I always hated green on a car !! But mine was green so.....
It turned out really nice if I do say so myself! I Love It!. If I can paint them that good each time I'd be very happy. I'm just tickled pink!
