Maybe Tech 69 can correct me but this is the best information I have.

To me it looks a little darker than the Corvette Yellow of that era and does have a Yellow toner or 2 that go to the green side.

I still love all those 60's, 70's era monochromatic colors...they are different and would stand today like they did back then.

Hope this helps.

not even sure if it's a 71 but it does have a green hue to it. I'd take Vette yellow over it anyday, but that's just my opinion. I'll take some pics when it gets the stickers and the sky clears up.
