Saddle color trucks

How 'bout some pics of my favorite color on these trucks, Saddle (at least I think that's the name). Does anyone have more pics of this one, for instance? Lets see the nice, saddle trucks in stock configuration. Are there any?

Re: Saddle color trucks

My Goldilocks project is this color, and was offered in '66 only. Danbury Mint had a 1:24 scale model out last year in the same color.

Re: Saddle color trucks

I know you like em stock. Other than lacking a set of tall and skinny tires, this is about as pure as they come. 22,000 miles, unrestored, with factory A/C. Pass the drool cup please.

Re: Saddle color trucks

I've always thought this color is one of the best for these trucks.

In a perfect world...I'd be sitting in the driver's seat of that with a smile from ear to ear and my arm out the window soaking up the sunshine.

Re: Saddle color trucks

That's actually a gorgeous paint scheme.

I can't get over how good that can look.

Refreshing.

BTW....
I'm thinkin it's a hard color to match.....just by lookin

It's different. There's a good bit of difference from the door jambs to the interior panels on my Saddle Poly '66. Saddle Poly has more brown in it than the Fawn Poly interior color.

Re: Saddle color trucks

Does anyone recognize the truck in my original post? I'd really like to find some more pics of it. Want to see it from the side. Very sharp.

Re: Saddle color trucks

Re: Saddle color trucks

I think my truck color could fall in the saddle family.
