It all depends on whether or not you make it factory stock or custom. If it's a custom, the sky's the limit. I tend to like the greens and blues, i.e. candy colors and metallics.
If it's factory stock, see if you can get ahold of the original color chart chevy made back then. I usually look in Collectibie Automobile magazine. Sometimes they have the correct color charts. Good luck.

I think white is good.You don't see it a lot,and detail really stands out on it.

Check out my Cameo CBP - I have made ghosted flames on it.
http://www.a3d.dk/scalemodels/cameo_cbp/
Basically I hold a piece of tracing paper onto the model and trace the contours. Then I draw the flames, place frisket film on the drawing, cut it out and apply the film to the model. You might have to cut the film into several sections.
PS. I didnt invent the tecnique - I just followed the article in SAE from around sept-nov 2003 Wink
