Default Pinecrest green vs Surf green

im looking for opinions ive leaning more towards surf green but i have a 56 chevy 150 4 door and i know they came with pinecrest green and love that color to but wouldt be weird to use surf green on a 56?
and would a 150 look better as solid color or two tone i couldt find any 150 that were either green and a white/ivory on the net or also maybe a white top and the rest green? any thought on how that might look on a 56
would anyone know how to photoshop maybe?

I've got a '56 150 and my car is factory pinecrest green.
The color has really grown on me quite a bit. I've saved a lot of photos of
pinecrest cars and I think the cars look great.

Here's how I've been thinking lately...I would paint my car any GM color that i liked from the 55-57 era. It will look correct and have a great 50's appeal, but the only people that will know that the paint isn't 100% correct will be the Trifive buffs,but they'll still like it.

Daleo,

I'm curious, what kind of comments do you get about the Pinecrest?

I think that the pinecrest green really suits the look of the 56 for some reason. Maybe I am just use to seeing a few with that color and I like the way it looks. On the other hand I do really like the surf green on the 57. I think you will like either color on the 56

It is a 20 footer for sure but I would not change a thing. Funny enough, 4 out of 5 of my current 56's came with Pinecrest Green from the factory. It must have been a popular color back then!

702D - Bel Air Hardtop D=Two Tone Bel Air; Sherwood/Pinecrest Green
717D - Bel Air Sedan D=Two Tone Bel Air; Crocus Yellow/Laurel Green
705E - 150 Sedan E=Non-capped 150 only style; India Ivory/Pinecrest Green
688A - 210 Wagon A=Solid Color; Pinecrest Green
702C - 210 Sedan C=Non-capped 210 only style; Sherwood/Pinecrest Green
