I recently bought a '58 convertible that proved to be originally L417 Amazon green on the birth certificate. I can't find any pictures of them on the net, I was thinking of changing the colour but a friend has warned against doing this for valuation reasons. It can't of been a very popular colour at the time, are there any others out there ?
