Default Re: 70 LS6, Monaco orange, original and unrestored

<div class="ubbcode-block"><div class="ubbcode-header">Originally Posted By: DW31S</div><div class="ubbcode-body">Some years ago, I had a '72 GS Convertible that was a &quot;special paint&quot; car. Definitely painted after assembly; front clip was NOT a perfect color match and had overspray everywhere, but THIS WAS ORIGINAL PAINT. </div></div>

Color mismatch was pretty common, as in most cases the front clip was painted in a different part of the plant (or in a different plant) than the body.

In the case of Buicks in Flint the front clip was painted in a <span style="font-style: italic">different part of town</span> then the rest of the car (bodies were built on the north side of Flint and trucked to the final assembly plant).
