Does anyone have a pure white FC w/ original paint?

Does anyone have a pure white (not cameo white) '63 - '65 FC w/ original exterior and/or interior paint? Solid or two-tone doesn't matter. If so, I'd like to ask some questions about it.

I want to know the color of the dash instrument panel, front door embossment and ceiling; depending upon how trimmed. Are they pure white or cameo? Similar question about ORVM, if original.

We have a 63 FC in factory white at my fathers. Its been sitting a mighty long time. Not a Greenbrier, but a 95 with full Windows. If that might help I can go take a look. Might be a few days though.

The would be great. If you don't mind, please also get the VIN and paint and trim codes (If I don't already have it in the Registry).
Thanks,
Steve

Hi Steve,
I have a pure white 61 Rampside. I am not near the car but have a pretty good library of photos. You can email me the info you need.

Hi John,
Nope, 541 is two-tone "off-white" (or cameo). I'm looking for FCs with paint cods that are 521 or 545, which are pure white.
But thank you anyway,
Steve

Hi Steve,

I have a 5521DA code 65 Deluxe with red interior. There are dash pics on Kent Sullivan's 65 registry (#40, second from top of list). He shows paint and option codes and pic for some.

Happy to take pics next week if helpful.

Darrin,
I am very interested in your van - rare 8-door deluxe - with the rare "DA" ECL on the paint code. Has the van been restored or is it in the same condition as shown on kent's page (I hope)? The mirrors are intriguing, but not a factory installation (actually, I thought that style mirror had been discontinued in '63 when the D29 mirror was introduced.), so I wonder when they were added. The wheel rims are also intriguing, painted red. I would love to know if that is the original factory color, or if the rims had been exchanged or repainted. I though a solid pure white Grenebrier would have white wheel rims?? Pictures of the dash (also looks like pure white dash panel) and other interior features that have been painted white would be most appreciated.

The van has had a lot of mechanical work done (drivetrain swap, full brakes with dual master and front end rebuild with Ken Hand's "Cadillac" packag of shocks and springs, all new gas lines, etc)), but looks much the same. We think it was a courtesy van at a dealership in Texas, and have been meaning to see if I can find any pics via the dealership as the dealer scripts have faded so much it is hard to envision how it looked. I think the exterior had a coat of house paint at some. Point, but it has mostly worn off.

Needs full restoration and have tracked down a horn ring, the special alt adapter and the correct date coded block (from the next van off the production line), so, someday...

I think the rims were painted red, not original, but it is possible they red when new. are now black with new tires. Van runs and drives with an old turbo engine with carbs and a car PG...have the original PG as well.

Will be out there tomorrow and take a few more pics.

Darrin...I do believe you can actually use the word rare when describing your Greenbrier.

The word rare is so over used by every car flipper kook out there...vairy cool eight door!!!

Wow -- The FC I was thinking of is 552 Georgian gray... Must have been a very thorough repaint. Ill give it a better look. The other '63 Rampside we have is 526 cameo. 16 FC's and not a single original that matches. Those are the solid white ones. We have two white /w red stripe I'll check again....

Sorry it took so long, and maybe no longer useful, but here are a few interior pics of painted surfaces. Have many more and can email them to you if you like Steve.

The paper in the first pic is really white, white. It is actually a fabric softener sheet. a few more.

Let me know if you are looking for any more specific shots.
