        I was thinking the same. It’s faded a bunch but looks closer to the DD-1.

        Thanks. I’m still about 2 yrs from done. :).

        All of those choices are great ones.

        EE-1 if I have to make a choice, but DD-1 looks like your original color.

          I like the EE—1 also. But I like the DD-1 also. So I got some time to decide.

          Hard to say,... The straight on shot in the third pic definitely looks like the DD1, but the exterior shots above it look darker. Guess it's all in the lighting, but the last picture looks like it could be a faded CC1.

          Oh,... my mistake. I thought you were trying to identify which one you thought it was....

          If that is the case, I like the CC1. My '69 Charger was originally B3 blue, which is pretty close to the DD1, but had been repainted to something between a B5 and B7 blue. I was never a fan of that lighter blue.

          For what it's worth, I am going with the LL1, shown on the right side of your color sheet, even though it is a '68 color. I don't honestly care though! :) Car is not matching, and doesn't have a fender tag or build sheet, so in my opinion, it really doesn't matter. I was originally thinking of '69 Q5 Bright Turquoise, but think I like the darker, greener hue of the LL1

          You are correct!,.... It will look good in any of those that you choose!

          If you pull the windshield you may see the original color that was protected from the sun. My bet is that if that is the original color it is a faded CC1.
          As to what looks best? They can all look great if applied right.
