Smile Re: Paint color choice

Remember Ford sold Chassis' only that went to all kinds of private coach builders. These companies would build special bodies and paint the truck whatever color the customer wanted. If you looked at Rob Mills fire truck at French Lick you saw a black fire wall and a red body. That means that the chassis left the factory painted black and the outside only was paint red during the building process at the Fire truck company in Indiana. Page three of the Restoration guidelines states "as it was driven off the assembly line" so I hope this explains why the cars and trucks are judged this way. Paint I believe is 30 points and you would probably loose at least half if you had a fleet color on a 29 truck. but this is questionable????
I hope this helps to explain what we do in the judging process,
Ken
