My vote is BRG, but then I'm Bias If you get a chance look up my build @Classic Roadster forum (Here), I had it painted a (Euro) PPG color called Zagato Dark, a 60's Ferrari/Zagato color, I looked at all the BRG colors (Jag, Lotus, AC, etc) none looked like the color I'd seen on an 65 427 Street back in 1967, till I saw the Zagato color. If you PM me I have many pictures of the color in different lights (Indoor, Outdoor, etc.) that I can email you. My $.03 Cheers Tom.

Default Agreed!

...you can't go wrong, either way. Viking Blue is much more common. You can see that color in the background of the first pic, for comparison! Here is a one close to BRG the Weavers did back in 2015 with tan interior. Sorry the pics are not that great in quality...

For whatever reason, this guy did not get the correct rear fender flares done on his car! The blue car has the correct rear fenders - not super easy to see in this shot. I can't imagine that they would ever let a 289 car out of their factory without them!

Viking Blue is great for a 289FIA, but then Iím just a little biased.
Looking forward to your build!

Cheers,
Glen

... I do not. But, Alan has an amazing memory, and I would be surprised if he couldn't tell you off the top of his head. If nothing else, they can look it up for you. Ring them up if it peaks your curiosity!

I think I'm going with the exact blue of that 96 car. That is the Weavers car and they are going to color match it.

Default Like I said...

you can't go wrong, either way. And now that you have chosen Viking Blue, you have to choose a team stripe! Yellow is a good choice! Course, I guess I am partial to yellow.
