SHOULD COLOR STAY OR SHOULD IT GO

I have a 92 Calypso coupe that needs painting. The car has no rust
or even dents but the clear is faded off. All the original body stickers
and tags on fenders, hood, doors, trunk, etc. Never wrecked.
What I want to know is should I stay with green or go black.
Tell me what you think.

Everyone loves a black coupe, but calypso is rare. Keep the car calypso.

I have a calypso 92 notch, would not chcange it for anything. I just restored the undercarriage completely myself and revamping with a total maximum motorsports package. New Seats, new carpet I got off mustangwarehouse on ebay, it's a dark color calypso which blends in real nice. I would keep the car, when mine is done it will have cervini front saleen bumper and cervini discountinued side exhasust skirts and possibly rear cobra panels.
+3 Calypso
Here's a link to see some updated photos, the undercarriage I did on my back and if I had extra $ and had taken to professional might be alot better but there was minimal scarring to begin with so I just smoothed primed with rust inhibitor then painted, I still have to clear coat and for my first time body work am actually very happy with the results. I did the engine bay and wheels wells too. The pic of the saleen calypso was a friend who emailed it to me and I have that very same bumper going on along a mach 2 hood. Calypso's are rare, in good form it's one of the nicest colors out there imo, I also got the smoke tailights now as the clears just didn't look right to me. brotherswarehouse are the ones who can calibrate the 200mph speedo got it along time ago though.


Good luck with your decision but Calypso is the way to go

2 tone it. Calypso on top and black on bottom, or vice versa. That way you wouldn't have to paint your jambs.

I like the black choice better, but with as original as the car seems, keep it Calypso for sure.

I guess I will stay with the green since everybody seems to think
that is the way to go. I am thinking about putting some blue pearl
in the clear. Not sure how that will look. I guess I will do some
test plots. Thanks for feed back.

Stay Calypso....anyways trying to change a color of a car and have it looking right is very time consuming. I am so picky, I would have to strip the car to a bare shell, place on a rotisserie, and paint it from there. Black is soooo common anyway.

Calypso. Its unique period to see on a car regardless of make. Black looks nice, buts fark all to keep good and well, its also the hardest color to photograph

as an owner of a calypso '02 LX i vote, KEEP IT CALYPSO!!!!!!!!!

i bought mine because it wasnt a color you see everywhere and honestly i though it was ugly(stuck out like a sore thumb)

has anyone ever found out how many calypso cars were built? ive seen countless threads about the subject and in most mustang stat books calypso green didnt exist until 1993?

I agree with everyone else, keep the calypso! It's a beautiful color, and there are so many black Mustangs out there.

If you are thinking about pearling the clear you might want to check out House of Color, I think they have a green pearl that you add to the clear that would add some depth to the calypso without changing the color.
