i have stripped a 1981 interstate and listed some of the parts for sale on craigslist. i got an inquiry asking what color it is.
i have always thought of it as black, but now i am not so sure ... seems to have a very deep blue color to it, or is it just my imagination.
note : it's factory paint; unless i am mistaken on that, too. it has gold pinstriping and has the look of a 37-year-old factory paint job.

ok ... was able to answer my own question with a bit of googling ... seems it is "cosmo black metallic", although any "metallic" effect seems to have disappeared over time.
