This was my color choice after much deliberation and in hand it is awesome.

@jack-dodds I just wish GLM had used chrome for the side trim. The silver paint looks dull compared to other chrome parts.

Off the top of my head, I think it's called "Palamino Bluff."   (...I think 🙄 🙄)  When I had my 1:1 1954 Lincolns I was a member of the LCOC.

I agree, the "dullness"  (noted on the interior trim too) seems to really standout, however, "BMF"  (Bare Metal Foil) would be an easy fix. 😀

@chris Auto Color Library confirms what GLM called the color.

Yep! Harv you're 100% correct. Palomino Buff is more like butterscotch.   I like both but prefer Cashmere Coral.  Thanks.

 GLM made a bad decision to cut cost on trim quality and for the price we have to pay for their models, this is not acceptable. A so large piece of trim in silver paint is simply said distracting and an eyesore.  They did the same with the 1958 or 59 Imperial Convertible.

A few years back, all trim was either chrome foil or photo etched on GLM models. 

We don't see that on any Goldvarg models and they retail for less.

She's a honey Harv, GLM should use your pics for advertising.....you can see where Lincoln stole those beautiful Dagmars from Cadillac.
