Very interesting subject indeed! COLO(U)R CHANGING.

As we all know White and Black are not actual colors, nor is PINK, but who would paint a Birdie PINK??? slap

Someone in Wisconsin did, and they Participated in the Aero Meet in Elkhart Lake in 2017...

There was a real Superbird painted in pink here in Canada and was for sale on Kijiji near Toronto last year. Had a white top though. Was originally a green car if I remember.

I remember a hot day in Cali, trying to fit a Black nosecone under a shade tree and boy was it HARD! slap

Every time we clamped up the 'Z bars' it would warp the metal and  look awful in the bright sunshine.
Whole thing had to be repainted again after fitment... smash smash smash
There were creases and scratches and fingerprints... scratchchin scratchchin scratchchin

Should have worn cotton-gloves methinks. Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy

Actually it is an original 72 PA police car that was restored in the late 80's,I did the carburetor for that car.That picture was taken at the PA State Police academy just after the car was finished,the bird belongs to a very good friend that was in charge of the academy at that time.Our friend here "hemi68charger" knows him very well.

Also,the color is blue and gold,standard color for that year and unless you're in a different country,the side of the road is correct !  Grin

And there is only one real Blackbird   scratchchin

Well I am a purist at heart. I had a yellowbird and the guy that bought it said there were thing he did not like ie including color.  I told him go order one, LOL.
I feel do not do a color change. There are not enough cars left out there for people to be picky. The value is in the original option sand colors.

There was a 70 hemi cuda at barrett  jan/19. It was an OK car but original color was F8 green with green bucket bench. It took I call a hard hit on value and in end 132,000usd.

And bad news unless you dunk the car and strip  white paint will always be showing up. Nice white paint showing thru nicks in B5 blue paint.

My only question would be is the sentimental value going to be affected by a color change ? Having owned it this long in white , will it still be - HIS - car if its a different color?
If the answer is  no to either, paint it any color so desired

Ive reached a point in my life we have to enjoy what we have  when we have it.
But I'll be honest , the purest in me is still trying to trump my thoughts to not let color be a such a major deciding factor for a car purchase.
Right now my 2 leading candidates are pale yellow one and a red one. Both white interiors, 2 colors that were never really on my 'want' list but they look killer with white interiors.

Back on thread again.

B5 Blue would deffo be my choice over white but any Bird in any color would be wonderful to me! drool5 drool5 drool5

Been wrestling with a color change on my F8 green C500 to B5 for 15 years and I finally thought NO! slap
F8 is coolio and B5 could be hard to live with, even for B5 lovers like me? scratchchin scratchchin scratchchin

Vinyl wrap is the name of the game now and I saw a flat green wrapped supercar and thought it was awful, but others said it was ubercool???

Do what you gotta do, to make your life happy. 2thumbs cheers 2thumbs

Paint is just paint, the way things are going in Europe, they will be banned soon (fossil burning cars that is) in any COLOR! shruggy

Doesn't it all really come down to money?  White is not a favorite color in mopar world.  It seems to be a subtraction on value even on a wing car.  So if this is not a concourse car to begin with, where it would lose that status.  It comes down to the desire of the owner.  Does he want to spend the money to change color so that he/she has a better enjoyment of the car.  Given that it may not be recoverable money.  Like making an addition to a house.  You never get it all back, but you get some back, and have the added enjoyment of the modification.

Guy in my area bought non matching EK superbird.  440/4spd for insane money because he had to have it.  He then paid to have hemi installed.  He then paid to have it painted petty blue.  He then paid for a different more powerful hemi.  He has the money and he is happy.   The car is far past the point of any investment return.

But I bet he does not do it.  If he is asking for opinions, he/she probably is not really gun ho on the idea.  But if everyone told him yes, and you will double your money on the paint job or get it all back, they would probably do it.
