That'a a cool color. The challenge with a 1st gen Camaro in this industry is having one that's different. I like that color because it says Pro Touring all over it but it wouldn't be just another charcoal grey 1st gen Camaro. A tan interior would really set it off and punch out the green shade.

If you've considered seeing it on paper first through a rendering shoot me a pm, I'd love to give you a bid. Samples at the links below.

Good luck with the build, looks like a great start!!

That’s close to, if not the actual color that Chris painted his Chevelle. Do a search in Cars Sold forum and type in 70 Chevelle. Author is Wissing72.
Looks great on a classic! Camaro would be killer in that color.

I think it looks great on the truck because of the contrasting dark and light green reflecting off the panel curves and body lines. 67/8 Camaro's have a lot of flat real estate, I've always thought 1st gens look best in black, silver or white and/or a combination of those colors for contrast. Just a thought

I like it! Have you seen the Ford color "Guard" ?? They put it on 2015+ Mustangs . It is very similar to this with a touch more green .

Do it. I have Sequoia green on my Firebird, and it looks great.
