        I know its not an option, but..... i like b7 best. I really like all the blues, but b5 is common,b3 is rare.
        On a blank canvas car where i could pick the blue, i would use b7 or b3.
        (You could start a poll)

        Codes and names changed from year to year. Heck dodge, plymouth and chrysler each called the same color and code by different names in the same year!

                  If your only choices are B3 or B5, go with B3. Seems like everybody and their brother, or sister, wants or has a B5 car. Has to be one of the most popular color choices when people paint their old Mopars. B3 is much less common but no less beautiful. B7 is also worth a consideration.

                      My '70 Swinger 340 is B5 blue with a B7 interior. I wish it had a white interior, but that's what I have Mine is also code V88, bumble bee stripe delete, so it look's different than the striped cars. There's a reason B5 blue was so popular, but preferences have changed. I still love any B5 blue Mopar with a white interior. No vinyl tops, please.
