1961H67 Posted February 25, 2022 Share Posted February 25, 2022 I’m restoring a 51 LJ , I drove this truck in the late 70s , the owner said it was bought new in Asheville NC buy the local Coke distributor, The paint was faded terrible, I sprayed it light blue just to make it one color. I want to paint it back original Coke ( According to the Mack Museum it was shipped to Asheville , September 51 All Red ) , Then it was Painted Coke Yellow , Cab , bottom of doors and fenders . The Roof was white & down around the windows . The top of hood and radiator shroud was Black. I have a question about the tops of the door frame painted black, you can see the original paint when I removed the mirrors. I have found 1 other truck with black door frames a old Howard Johnson truck. Possibly the color scheme back then was left up to the local Bottling Co ? Just Wondering about the door frames, Thanks if any ideas. 2 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
