Curt, thanks! But I need to ask a bit more.... forgive my insistence:

So, from your pic I take it that they were monotone and pinstriped?

What if the car was the Custom model (mine is)? Could it then be two toned? The idea I have of black car with red raised portions could have been offered from new?

I browsed a lot and found the pic I am attaching on the net... no idea whose it is. I'd love to get more pics of it... but anyhow, that is exactly the idea I had in mind.... only with chrome wheels and blackwalls. Would such a car have been a possible offering from new?



Thanks!
Victor

This is my car, it will have a crimson pinstripe.

The bitterness of poor quality remains long after the sweetness of low price is forgotten.

Look close there are two colors of cream & tan + the pinstripe.

Curt, thanks! Ok on the two colors of cream and tan, and also the black and blue car. So, I take it that the black and carmine car I sent is painted in a correct original pattern. That will be my model to follow.
One final question: I guess the pinstripe could also be the same contrasting color, carmine in my case, correct? Or do you know what was used as pintstripe color with black and carmine?

Thanks again!
Victor

Victor .From the factory for fifty dollars you could get any color in the period you wanted, Traditionally the fenders match the trim on the body and the body matched the trim on the fenders (two colors)Most factory photos show double white walls but shipping records spell out black walls . I am like you the chrome wire wheels are enough bling without the whitewalls Yes Black and tan Hartz cloth was orig.Randy

Randy, thanks!

So, I guess that if I don't take the "traditional" route (personally, I wouldn't like a black car with carmine fenders!) and want to get my car like the one I attached above, I will just have to imagine somebody had that $50 dollar option requested from new.

Thanks for confirming on the blackwalls and possible black top.

I am eager to do the car as I described. Final decission will have to be uphostery... as I think I could have black or the same carmine color... I will have to think about it. Is it known if both were offered? Or should I play it safe and stick to black?

I know it will be too sober... but I have enough color in other cars and no black one (except for a model T).

Thanks again,
Victor
