Unfortunately, the truck must have been sold to a local Municipality and was painted yellow so the original paint was all gone. We wanted to make this truck as authentic as possible, so we searched and eventually found some lacquer paint that matched the Air Force Blue color as best we could. We then treated the accent pieces with Gloss Black Base Clear for a killer color Combo. This 1950 Chevy truck sits low and is loud and fast as hell. Come check it out and take her for a spin!
