I'm at a tossup on the color, car has had one repaint about 10 years ago. Original color is Cordovan Maroon with white top and red interior. Last owner had a newer generation white and black with red interior, he painted this one to match. He also said that he thought the Maroon and red didn't go together well. I came across a coupe for sale with the same color combo and I kind of like it but white has grown on me too.

May considering going back to original if I paint her again in my remaining lifespan :-)
Well not sure that originality would trump that awesome color combo for me. I have a 66 Chevelle SS which originally left the factory Madera Maroon (burgandy) with red interior. Terrible combo visually for me. I ended up going black on black for the resto.

I think rare options are desirable but more so if it is a desirable option plus on a desirable model. Loaded big block four doors are neat but the resale market is very slim. My 69 vert WAS per the POP a 6 cylinder 3 speed with factory air (kind of rare) but it never impressed anyone. When it was sold the current owner did not seem to even care.
