Re: 1941 paint scheme for Convertible Coupe

I was finally able to locate a photo of John Orientas's all original 1941 120, but it is only an exterior shot taken at an Eastern Packard Club event sometime in the 1980's. As I recall, the dashboard was painted green, and the interior plastics were color keyed to the interior in green as well. I'm not sure of the shade, but my thought is that the dashboard should match the upper body color. The top of the dashboard is in line with the hood which would be painted the lighter color on a two-tone car. Painting the dash in this color as opposed to the darker lower color would blend in better and look more harmonious. There is a 1941 Packard 120 Convertible Sedan now for sale in Hemmings where the dash matches the lighter upper body color. See link below.
