    Thanks for your help.

    My 67 Charger is just about ready for paint. It has been a long process..... I know that I want a dark green and I have narrowed it down to 2 choices.

    Dodge colors.

    1967 GG-1 Dark Green Poly

    or
    1968 Racing Green Poly.

    As you guys know it is very difficult to tell what the colors will look like from the little paint chips on the color cards.

    If you have used a green color like that I would like to see what it looks like on your cars. A post a picture if you can. I need help with this decision.

    Thanks again!

    Hey Mitch, From another Mitch. I am restoring a 68 Dart GTS H code car. It is GG1 green. the green that you are talking about are really the same color in 67 and 68. I have seen the color on finished cars, and I like it a lot. At night it almost looks black. My GTS will have that color on it with a black vinyl top and a red tail stripe to match the hood inserts and outlined GTS emblems. If you so a search here or over on FABO for GG1 , I think you will find some comparisons. I myself love the color and can't wait to get mine in fresh paint.
    Mitch

            I decided on Dark Green Poly from 68. I think that is similar to what is on your car.

            Gpuller are you going to be at Mopars in the Park?
