repainting 1968 Torino GT fastback. originally Meadowlark Yellow with light nugget gold interior. I was wondering if this color is desirable or if there are any other good options that match the gold interior.

Welcome Stewy68. You can choose many different colors to work with that gold interior. Anything from white, black, or blues for example, those can contrast beautifully with the interior color. Using a yellow or similar shade may be harder to visualize what the end result will be. But I'd bet many colors can look very nice with your interior color.

Hey there Stewy,
My '69 has light nugget gold interior as well.  It was ordered with C code "Black Jade" and has gold stripes.  I think it goes well with the interior, but I'm kind of biased Smile.  It's a color that's looks greener in the daylight and almost black in the shade or at night.  A few pics below:

great looking car! I would like to go with the gold c stripe to match the interior.  I'm just not sure if the original Meadowlark yellow with gold c stripe will look good. I'm considering royal Maroon, Indian Fire, or presidential blue as an alternative.

Thanks.   Here's a hardtop that was on BAT a while back that may help visualize.
