My '51. I assume it's Azure blue. Did they have any other blue colors in 1951? This shot shows it covered in what appears to be blue house paint. Inside is all original.

Yes, I believe Dove Blue might have been in there somewhere, and perhaps Medium blue. But I think yours is azure.

...But you know I'm taking very good care of it here on the Left Coast Paul...

In case anyone cares, the car has a feature article in the December 2006 issue of Hemmings Sports & Exotic Car magazine.

Cheers, Rob
