Not a factory color for the car, but a stunning build none the less.

It is, It's Chrysler Copper brown, just looks different under studio lights, if I was to pop it outside in the sun, it would look more like this one

Beautiful work as always GeeBee. The paint on the 1/1 cars, if original, is likely a little faded from the years too I'm sure

Yes, they would have done, back then they didn't have the clearcoats we have to day that stop the UV rays from bleaching the paint, I remember the early metallic finishes over here, and within a few years they had bleached so bad, and the UV had damaged the paint so much it used to flake off.
