I can't select from your choices. Turquoise sometimes looks blue and sometimes looks green.

Honestly, I'd like to know!

It's a white, but slightly off-white. More like Oatmeal. Anyone know?

The color section of the archives leads me to believe it's L 90 D (06) pastel white, but the car has Gala Red seats under the black vinyl covers...so who knows! All the usual "this won't be painted on a repaint" sections are the same white color (though the car was repainted)...so some previous owner played some games somewhere!

The white for '69 was L90C Toga White. I've got the same and it is a little off white.
