Shuben, I say dark colour to offset the cream rims. Maybe a deep red or bottle green from the catalogue? Or use the Jawa as a sample?

Cheers,
Rahul

Rahul Bhai, dark maroon in interesting. I am done with harvest green for some time now. Your Jawa color sample has been applied in my bullet and Yezdi......

What about this color with cream seats ?

Hi Toms,
great color, worth considering. I may avoid orange because its too catchy for my age.
i want to throw another aspect of choosing color. I believe color should represent the purpose for which this jeep is being restored - Weekend fun activities ....

Regards,
Shubhendra Singh

Amrth,
here is history of this model (DJ3A):
The Jeep "Surrey" or "Gala" was a package on the two-wheel drive DJ-3A Dispatcher. Produced by Willys starting in 1959, the Surrey was usually seen in pink (actually Tropical Rose/Coral Mist), but also offered in Cerulean Blue/Glacier White, and Jade Tint Green/Glacier White , and 1959 Willys paint chips.

The rare color advertising photo here dates from 1960. The chrome hubcaps all have red trim, whereas most pink Surreys have body color trim on the hubcaps . Also the pink steering wheel appears to be painted the darker Tropical Rose, rather than the usual lighter Coral Mist steering wheel.

BTW, two days back this Jeep did a jungle trip of 120 kms and performed flawless. as suggested by Arka for engine run-in, regular breaks were taken, RPM varied etc. Need to fix silencer, though i love current sound ( it has half silencer).
I am anticipating to start paint by early June (before monsoon), lets see how it goes.

The picture of the willys in the primer exemplifies to me the timeless nature of the body shape.
