    I can't decide what color to have my 69 charger 440 painted now that the time has come to decide. i want an unusual color that has some pop too it and will turn heads, possibly burnt orange or b5 blue, but at the same time i don't wanna look too flashy with a color like lime green or panther pink, two that are definitely out. the car will have a black vinyl top. what color do you all think would be a good pick?

    Plum crazy Purple/Pearl with a Black top would look stunning.

      Go gold. Mopar did a few high impact gold colours in the 00's.

        You suggested you liked burnt orange - I think that’s a stunning color on a Charger. Make it a pearl burnt orange and you’d probably be very happy. B5 is a beautiful color but but plenty of Mopars out there with it. Don’t see many burnt orange....

            build or buy a model of your car and spay paint it, try different colors Had the same issue ,couldn't agree on a final color by having the small example I could see the color in real time just on a smaller scale. I like Orange 21-Picture 376.JPG

              Burnt orange would look great imo, although it was not a factory color in 69 if that is important to you. 1969 T5 copper also looks sharp on a B-body.

                          When was the last time to see a white one with black vinyl.
                          Maybe not standout eye caughting but unusual.

                            If you’re not looking for original color, black cherry with a little fade
                            Not my car but one I found with close to the color
                            Good luck!
