a primer-ed car was rare,Pearl paint jobs were the way to go if you could afford it.
I don't remember pearl being around that far back but Candy Apple And metal flake were. Speaking of Appletons, check he picture. I have two of these that have never been on a car. If I put them on something they will be gone if I sell the car.
