Was two tone paint normal for the 1912 touring? Fenders black, body separate color?

I am deciding on paint color and am going with navy blue body and very dark blue fenders.

I noticed many other 12's with black fenders. Was that how they originally came off the line? I thought only delivery cars were that way?

Like to know for myself and to tell on lookers at shows what was normal.

Thanks! Bob

Robert,

According to Bruce (R.I.P.) at: http://www.mtfca.com/encyclo/1912.htm as well as the MTFCI Judging Guidelines 6th edition, the 1912 cars came either way. So the choice appears to be up to you.

From http://www.mtfca.com/encyclo/1912.htm Bruce wrote: All cars were painted a very dark, all-but-black, blue. .... (Fender color is listed as “black” in the 1912 Factory Facts booklet; both blue and black seem to have been used, based on existing, seemingly original, cars.)

Respectfully submitted,

Hap l9l5 cut off

Robert, to be "correct " if you are going with blue the fenders should be the same color as the body not two shades of blue. Or blue body with black fenders. Best of luck. MG
