Bluemist Slate Coupe with a White Vinyl Top?
Has anyone seen this combo before? Doesn't need to be from the factory. Thoughts?
I am restoring a 65 Tempest Custom Coupe would like to repaint the factory Bluemist Slate, but I have always liked the look of the vinyl tops. The interior will not be the same two tone as per the factory, rather the LeMans/GTO dark blue with a light blue headliner, sunshades and body color lower dash and top of the doors. Wheels are 15 inch black with dogdishes. Part of me thinks black top to match the wheels, the other white, to highlight the Bluemist. (Truthfully, the biggest part of me would like to match the interior dark blue with the vinyl top but I can't find a manufacturer).
Despite my ramble, any thoughts to what would look best aesthetically? Not looking for someone else to build my car for me, but I tend to be a little color-dumb/blind at times.
