The latter was completed with the body and fenders in black, and hood and cowl in a dark shade of blue. A blue accent panel on the rear doors is highlighted with a fine light gray pin stripe, which is echoed on the concave coupe pillar where body meets cowl. The wheels are finished in a shade of straw, accented with subtle blue designs. The top is of much older vintage and shows its age.
