Paint Color Question

The warranty plate numbers says that the car colour is gulfstream aqua.

The Marti report says the car is gulfstream aqua

The car is metalic black.

The engine compartment, interior of the trunk and inside the door panels are gloss black, not metalic.

Does this make sense?

Any insight would be appreciated.

Re: Paint Color Question

It makes sense for a repainted car that was jambed with paint that was not the same as the final exterior paint. They didn't want to spend the money for metallic paint when doing the insides and jambs.

Re: Paint Color Question

makes me wonder....

since gulfstream aqua is a completely different color

you said in your other thread that , that you bought car from original owner..

did he have it repainted/color changed
makes me think it has been repainted twice
first time real thorough (complete tear down)door jams, behind door panels and inside trunk etc...
second time a fresh up with metallic in paint, close enuff, not feeling the need for re doing everything???

in picture is the 1968 gulfstream aqua color..
