If you plan to drive it a lot, you will find a Tudor more practical than a Roadster.

It looks cool as-is, whether you change out the color or not. Nice looking little A. Keep us posted on what you do, and have a good summer. Driving season is upon us!!!

Thanks. The color has actually grown on me now and 90% of the people that see her in the flesh (metal) say the love the color. So, yellow-orange or nacho colored she will stay. I don't think I will do anything other than maintenance and upkeep. Although I really would love to get those stupid turn signals off the fenders. They look like they came off a truck roof from the 70's.

That is a good choice Garwood, leave it as-is and enjoy the truck. Just keep up on the maintenance and we know you will

Ford, looking for sales in the slump of the Depression, was custom painting trucks for customers with the colors that they requested.

Your truck would fit that category! Just tell people it is a custom color from Ford

The color looks great, if you want you can put a contrasting stripe on the belt line, color of your choice to make the body color come alive.

There's 2 very narrow stripes. Dove gray and black that run down the body, around the tail gate and bed sides. There's also a couple spots where someone painted some "old school" pinstriping. With curves and curls, kind of like they did back on hot rods from the 70's. They're not over powering but tastefully done. I'll have to get out this summer on a sunny day to take some better pics.

This is the 3rd truck I've seen in this color so I guess it's common.
