Maybe there is no "best" color. Just vote for your favorite.

Depends upon which year Eliminator. I would not cross colors between the years.

I like Competition Green, but would not paint a 1969 Eliminator that color.

I like most of the 1970 Eliminator colors better than the 1969 colors.

I think that you are missing one of color, aren't there 9 between the two years of Eliminators, not counting the special paint black ones?

I agree with keeping the colors with their proper year. When I went to vote, I realized I liked one 70 color and one 69 color so I changed the poll to allow two choices.

I may have missed a color. Were the yellows different 69 to 70?

Yes,
Code 9 is Bright Yellow in 1969.
Code D is Competition Yellow in 1970.

Thanks Scott. Fixed the poll, but I guess everyone needs to vote again.

This is what I was looking for !

Obviously I have some bias.


Maybe there’s enough interest to do a GTE poll!
