Sea Foam Green

Does anyone have any pics of a truck in this color? I am considering it for a 69.
Thanks,
Dave

Are you talking about a factory color? Or something picked from a color chart off another vehicle?

Probably not necessarily a Chevy color but perhaps Buick??? From the 50s

Fender Guitar used it as a custom color for an option on their instruments.. They used car color finishes.

My mom had a 1966 Buick Skylark and the color was Sea Foam Green. A real nice color. I also saw a 66 GTO back in 1969 at the same Buick dealership with the same color which I was trying to get my parents to buy me for graduation instead of the yellow 70 Opel Kadet they got me instead. If they only knew how much that car is worth today!

I believe this one is seafoam. i have seen lots of 60-66 pickups finished in this color, as i stripped mine it was this color. I think this one is though.

This is what GM called "Seafoam Green" in the early 70's.

Try doing a google search of some classic Corvette web sites, that was one of the rare color options but I can't remember for what years. Or maybe contact some Corvette restoration shops, I'll bet the have the GM color codes because most of those guys are what I would call "ultra-perfection-types". I checked the color code of my truck...one word, GREEN
