BTW...what are the round plastic pieces on the side of the black door?

Back when they did dip prime the cars the only way they would last 5 years was to Ziebart rust prevent them. They drilled holes in rockers. door, etc. and ran long wands inside and sprayed hot wax to cover the metal. Helped a lot. The black car was a Dearborn Michigan car and not so rusty.

thanks

Someone sent me this 73 paint code chart a few weeks ago.  
I was trying to figure out my Data Plate 6B color code which says Lt Yellow Gold. 
But current car color today is more like 6D or 6E.  
Must be a color change repaint but I dont see any evidence. MIKE SRO

This 73 has most of the original factory paint not a repaint. The code is 6E.
I did not really want a yellow car it just came up at a good price and a rust free California car also. Almost rust free all tail light panels are rusty, lol. The Decor Group sort of breaks it up some.

Colors are notoriously difficult to represent correctly across computers. I overlaid the 73 yellow chips over your car's picture and I believe it's the correct original 6B color. 6C is too brown and 6D & 6E are too yellow.

Code on the door is 6E for sure also have the Marti.
The door sticker pic was made by PO when I was looking at it on ebay really bad color there. I pulled the panel off between the tail lights so that has not seen sun at all.
Only great pics are Kodachrome, lol. The chips also change over time.

This was my 73 vert witb 6C and white interior. As stated previously, 6C was a late 73 production color that carried over to 74 and possibly later. It's a somewhat rare color. My 73 vert was one 1 of 26 made with white interior. I wish I still had it.

The pic shows the color accurately against the canary yellow house behind it.
