    There was also some fiber board on top of my my package tray just under the carpet. I was kind of glued on to the top of the tray.

      My wife want this exact color on her Barracuda. Anyone knows if this is an original color or not? And if so which one? To me, it looks like a silver metallic with a little bit of champange tint to it. Can't really match it with one of the original colors that I can find on the web.
      Photo is taken by a friend of my wife, it was for sale in L.A recently. (And her friend also talked to the owner, he didn't know either). It does look good with the red interior.

        It looks like (or similar to) the buffed silver used in 65. I don’t remember if was a special order or not

          That looks similar to the grey I used. Paint is from a 2013 Dodge Dart. PDM, Mineral Gray Metallic. It was similar to the original grey just had more metallic in the paint.

            It does seem to have a slight champange tint to it though, and thats what my wife likes. (or is it the CA sun?) I like yours Keith!

              Hi Soundcontrol this is as close to original 1965 silver I could match , my car was original black interior so kept it black since had the car when I was 16 first car now 62 but I really like the red interior myself.

                IMG_20200412_164534028_HDR.jpg Mine is AA9 chrysler gray metallic. Unfortunately, this is the only picture I have of it completed. It was an overcast day and looks completely different in the sun (much lighter). The champagne look could be the effects of the sun.

                  Thanks guys. Love your cars! We decided to go look at new cars and find a grey/champange color that she likes and get the color code from the dealer. Chevy has a nice light champange. Not stuck on original.

                  My neighbors 66 Dart GT, repainted in Viper Silver Dollar. No champagne, but looks great.

                    Have you examined the hidden areas under the front cowl? Most every ABody of this vintage will need at least a partial rebuild of this area because the drain holes get plugged up over the years. It's a lot of work but should not be overlooked.

                      This is an old rust repair, I suspect this reinforcement that the parking brake cable goes thru is cut off, looks like it should meet the firewall? Kinda the same deal on the passenger side. Anyone got a picture of this area so I can see what it looks like?

                        Great photos, and I see that the whole edge on the lower firewall is missing on my picture, gonna start with removing all the undercoating and see what I have to do to make it right....thanks so much!
