That's called Silversmoke Grey, paint code 'k' in 1965. The red GT stripes are the original stripe color... the original paint and stripes are still inside the doorjambs

Looks right, sits right! Man! That's just a RIGHT car!! It does reaffirm the fact that the early cars do have it. Not that the later ones don't but that car just gets it. How 'bout sizs on rims including width and tire size. Any change on front springs?? Looking forward to seeing full spread.

Wheels are American Racing Torq-Thrust 15x7 with a backspace of 3 3/4". Tires are BFG T/A's, 205/60's on the front, 245/60's on the rear. Front coil springs are just the stocker GT coils (almost 40 years old), I didn't even drop the control arms. The back end is sitting just a bit lower than it could sit... full tank of fuel and 80# bag of concrete over the right rear
