It has been that color for a while which is a crime against humanity (in my humble opinion).

No, I don't care for the color either, and while I generally prefer early J architecture, something about this car has always grabbed me since I first saw it, many years ago. The sunroof can stay as that was original to the body, but a return to the original guise incl. the louvered hood panels & black wall tires would help tremendously.

What color is it? I have seen a few "J"'s with weird colors and one in particular,a LeBaron Barrelside(I think) that belonged to the DuPont family was the wildest shade of green I have ever seen.

Metallic dark rose pink. The auction company refers to it as "strawberry."

Bob Roller replied the topic: Weird paint
I guess to each his own but Metallic Rose whatever?
Were any "J"'s ever painted with metallic paints when new. The story I heard was that meallic paints were the result of a mechanical failure in a paint mixer and a failed ball bearing introduced this flaky substance into a show car's paint job. I THINK maybe a Cadillac of some kind. Anyone have any ideas about this??

Bob,

While I can't say for sure, I would imagine the later cars could probably be had with metallic pigments. Certainly not "metalflake" as we know it today, but a very fine metallic. From foggy remembrance, I would describe this car's current paint job as metallic. Still, not a good shade....
