I finally saw a F8 Green IRL at the dealership. I dreamed of one, and Chrysler finally delivered. Don't get me wrong, I love that color. If I was to get a Challenger, it would be F8. Does the color look a bit yellow or lighter than the original F8 Green back in 1968? My uncle had a 68 Plymouth Barracuda. I recall it been a bit "darker" than the current F8. I last saw his car about 35 years ago before he sold it.

Did they add "pearl" paint to the F8? Are my old eyes fooling me?

The original F8 Green was a metallic, with predominately dark metallic flake to it.

The modern version does have gold pearl - so it brightens up the tone and it makes the color look less murky compared to the original color from the 60s/70s.

I recently painted my 1970 Challenger with the vintage F8 formula. It also has lots of gold metallic in it.

We had one come by the other day and I thought it was beautiful. I'm not sure how it compares to the old F8 but I love the new one.

Here are some pics ...

Crappy mercury vapor lighting doesnt help a paint job.

I looked at a Destroyer gray Hellcat the other day and the paint looks like the roller job I did when I was 15.

I agree: it is a beautiful color.

My local CDJR dealer has a few on the lot.
