Postby Bumpside Bobby » Tue Feb 27, 2018 12:18 pm

I've been looking across the net for pics of with the same paint scheme as mine. white with a blue (or any color) top. and it seams that it has a color top it also has a color mid or bottom. is there any out there like mine, with just the cab colored?

There were a few color options for these trucks. Yours is not unusual with a painted cap. Sometimes the cap was painted the same as the bottom with a chrome/stainless divider down the side as with the Ranger option. It is still classed as a two tone paint job. There were a run of these trucks in '69 that were orange or a darker lime green with a sprayed on fake vinyl cap. They too had a chrome drip rail and chrome siding and was a Ranger package. A rare truck if you can still find them. Maybe others on this site know better than I do but I don't think Ford offered any metallic colors until later model productions in the 70's. All my Fords are solid colors and that is what I remember them all to be. 8)

Sometimes through the years work has to be done on the top of the truck and get painted, either matched to the truck or a different color to make a "two tone" look. I wouldn't be surprised if that blue showed up after some sort of roof repair. Its the same reason my grandpas truck ended up having a root beer brown top on a all white truck. :2cents:
