And check the photo to see if the roof is the original rectangular panel type, or a replacement diagonal panel. Door type could change too.

Hi Brad,

Actually, for this particular car the "correct" answer is pretty simple:
"Anything goes, knock yourself out"

By the early 1950s, the cars were a jumbled mess. Some were all brown, some had black roofs and ends, and some even had bare galvanized roofs with brown roof ribs. The NKP was generally pretty standard about how they painted their cars, but these things got a little bit of everything. It's best to pick a specific car from a specific year, and model that individual car!
