I used 3021 as a paint code match. Over the years it no doubt changed and as it stands a closer relative to a Chrysler shade.

Very close to the Sunlit Gold for used in the late 60's.A friend of mone told me several years ago that the paint manufactures developed colors and would approach the car companies and contract to them to "lock" that color for a year or two for their exclusive use on new cars. The car company would come up with a marketing name for their use. It would then sometimes sit idle for a few years and come back with another car company- same chemistry, different name for them.

When I recently repainted my 67 Mustang and was looking for the color code I discovered 67 Mustang Candy Apple red was used several years foe different car companies on different years with different names just to prove my friend's comment.

Finally ready for the road.
Added ERA door pockets and a nice repop of the Halibrand spinner with the CAL versus the CA on most.

I would be happy to take those terrible "Halibrand CA" spinners off your hands if you haven't already thrown them in the trash

Rubber gaskets were leaking pretty bad.
Found it time to replace with cork gaskets to avoid continued oil seepage.
Also back to original chrome VC.
Cinched up headers.
Now awaiting a non raining day to see what happens.
