Home at last! Not all the hazards are in the garage..... glad things went better.
Interesting how they used a black base color only on the front sheetmetal - seen this on other GMs of the period..

More info.
The color on the car is called “French Gray” according to the body tag on the firewall.
I know to some it may look like old crappy white but it’s definitely gray in person.

Great score Torchie, and sorry to hear about your rude awakening the other morning. I've been away for a week and it sure seems like a lot can happen around here in just a week. Late to the patina party, but I used Sweet Patina on my Thriftmaster and couldn't be happier with it. I applied it once last year and it's still looking good. It doesn't sit out in the sun, but I've washed it at least a half dozen times.

Treasure Hunting.
Emptied ou the trun yesterday.
A full set of 53 Cadillac Wheel Covers.
All the really hard to find rocker trim. Including the 2 long ones.
The sheet metal parts are a DS dog leg as well as what I think might be part of the replacement rockers.
Also went through the box in the front seat.
All the removed or cut off pieces from under the hood are there.
Crazy hood springs. And my latch is missing the safety catch along with the release handle.More searching.......
That's all for now folks.
