Rafael,

Forester Green was the standard color from 47-52. Juniper Green was the standard color for 53-55st.

Are really going to change what you now have? It does look nice. If you are going to change to an original exterior/body color, will you be changing other colors to original colors? That would be a lot of work.

I see, thank you for the correction, learn something new everyday. smile I plan on keeping it this way for a while, until all the electronics work perfectly and until $$$ comes in, but yes, I would love to repaint it. Evevn if I repaint it black. The paint job now is decent, but its not great :/ in the compartment, but for now, I can live with it, because I have no intention on selling the truck.

I did some research on the interior colors/upholstery and I must say I love the color scheme: Pearl Biege/Brown/Black.

Again, painting it, wont be for a while. Right now I need to take care of some of the smaller things, like installing the second e brake bracket (was missing when I bought it) along with cleaning the drum brakes and fixing the steering..(Feels pretty loose while driving "swaying" almost)

The green is a great color but the black looks super to me. You don't see a lot of black ones. When I was your age I had a 54 in Transport Blue, it was a great truck.

Thank you mendonjo, I was debating on that still, but I've made up my mind to stick with black. Has that greaser look to it. Kinda dig it.

Keep a look out today/tonight. I'll be posting some pics of the progress on the truck. (New E-brake cable) and cleaned out rear drums. Along with speedo fix!
