Can someone tell me if this was a factory paint scheme? I've seen several T-birds painted this way including my 59 which was painted just the same way when I bought it.

I'm like 95% sure that it was not. The two tones were the roof differernt than the body, but not the body in 2 different colors.

I agree with Sandy.

Defintely not painted that way from the factory. If your data plate has a single letter for the color, then your car was all one color. If it has two letters, then it was two tone, roof and body were different colors.

I agree with both Sandy and Alexander. And considering it was my Bird used in the example ... Let's just say that I *know* it wasn't a factory paint job. ;)

I have a picture of a 4-tone Squarebird. I will try to dig it up.

I have seen all sorts of novel paint schemes on Squarebirds.

Yes, but like I said .... it's a black exterior car !! The ONLY monotones that I ever saw were either white OR black cars. Have you ever seen, or can recall seeing, a 58 59 or 60 in MONOTONE paint that WAS not a black OR a white car ??
