Colors listed in bold at left denote optional Glamour colors; these colors have a higher level of metallic particles in the paint to provide a more reflective surface.

*Although initially available as an option, Autumn Fire (code 5R), was not listed in the sales brochure dated January, 1974.  It is believed this color was discontinued at mid-year.
