I'm always amazed as how close the War Bonnet Yellow is to Riverside Gold. I'm not sure I could tell them apart. Have not seen them side by side however.

Good luck with your sale. Ralph

Bump since its been awhile.
Plus i wanted to share this mornings tire kicker. He asked if i had proof that the components (alt, starter, carb) Basially everything dated besides the block actually came with the car and werent replacements. After a drive and listening to his knowledge of Vettes? I didnt realize black was most popular color for early 70"s. And Chevy stopped production of the 355 cubic in. due to people returning them from producing too much power vs the LT-1 motors. WOW. Guess he never heard of the LS-6 or L88
I finally told him my way back machine was down and politely said goodbye.
