Post Pics of Your 2-Tone Truck!!!

As I have mentioned in some other threads, I am a big fan of the two-tone paint schemes on these trucks. I think they combine the best of the old-school look from the 67-72 era trucks with the newer body style of our 88+ models

I know there were 3 versions of the two-tone paint schemes --
*Conventional Two-tone with the accent color on the bottom
*Special Two-tone with the upper stripe decal and an accent color below
*Deluxe Two-tone with the upper stripe decal and an accent color between the decal and the lower body color

Here's my 89 Silverado RCSB with the original Deluxe Two-tone scheme of Caramel Brown Metallic / Hugger Orange Stripe Decal / Sandstone Metallic / Caramel Brown Metallic

Please post yours too!!!

Re: Post Pics of Your 2-Tone Truck!!!

Here's my truck its a 1989 c1500 silverado. Paw paw bought it new off the lot in 1989 an left it for me before he passed away in 2007. Grew up around this truck an learned how to drive in it. You dont see the color hardly at all

Re: Post Pics of Your 2-Tone Truck!!!

Not that it's rare,but out of 17 of these trucks,the only 2 tone I have owned was hideous.
It was a silver 96,but with a teal green accent in the middle.Ugliest truck I've ever owned,never took a single photo of it.

I know its a bit off subject but are those fender flares factory? My 93 will need a paint redo soon and I would love to have a set of flares on it.

They are the factory style that was used on 3/4 and 1 ton trucks. I bought an aftermarket set off ebay and had them painted to match.

I looked at a few Chevy 2500 trucks that were factory two tone and they were painted the same way I did mine with the flares the same color as the hood and roof.
