The sky is the limit....

I always liked a nice metallic silver on that generation of truck.

Good color choice there. How many miles on your truck? I like that 351W; had it in a '72 Galaxie 500...ran great for almost 150,000 miles-then I sold the car. Good luck with your beast.

It's all up to you. Greys of any sort are nice. My Ford is white, which is always in style. Or always out of style, depending on how you look at it. Red is a no no. Statistically red vehicles do get pulled over more. Sad but true. Blue is my personal favorite.

It's your truck. What coolor do you want?
