Thank you for your comments and it is a difficult decision

I have always wanted a red/black car because I like the colour scheme and with the correct red/burgundy it says "pre-war". Some would argue that it is more Augusta than Aprilia, but this is an early '37 car, so OK to my mind

A single red could look very good as well and then a burgundy hood would be lovely. Plus it seems a shame not to use the delightful line across the top of the doors and in front of the rear wing - so many options

Dog came over this afternoon and we had fun with spraycans. Even though it was mat black and a slightly pink, red it has given an idea how it would look. The only problem is that as always it raises more questions than it answers !

Here are some of the results .......

ps I like the 2 tone blue, but that was how it was repainted when it came to France (I think) and I already have a blue car . I think the yellow /black would look great but I would always be thinking of Modestine

It's unusual, to say the least, for the colour to change at the waist line of an Augusta. I think it looks a bit strange. Black wings and running boards and another colour everywhere else is the norm, unless it's black all over.

"I have always wanted a red/black car because I like the colour scheme".    Is there a particular car you remember those colours?  If so, whatever it was, why not match exactly?

Maroon and black can look very classy but I would go quite dark on the shade of maroon, darker than your trial colour. If would think the colour and shade of the hood ought to be a determining factor as the variety of shades would be more restricted.

The two tone blue looks very nice. Summer colours. If you want it more sombre there's black over grey although neither would give you your burgundy hood. Just thought I'd add confusion. Thought you would have preferred a Carignan hood to Burgundy.

Here is a nice Aprilia cabriolet in 2 tones of blue.

Be careful when choosing a color for the convertible hood. Make sure the cloth is woven in the chosen color - I have seen in Italy convertible tops on Aurelias B50 cabriolet which were dyed, starting from white cloth, and they do not age well! Personally I think that a black top is still best, in the long term.

+1 for this finish, shows off lines nicely, would look well all year around in the south of France.

There was a S1 B20 Pininfarina Speciale sold last year at auction in the UK which was a lovely shade of red and black with an interesting line for the colour change. I cant find pictures just at the minute.

I  think it will look very smart in red and black, or maroon and black; and if you've always wanted a car in that colour scheme, why not? Except, looking back to the earlier pages in this thread, your steering wheel is light blue! What are you going to do about that?

Pininfarina wasn't averse to two-tone paintwork: these are both Alfas, but the colour scheme works well.





I think if you are going for this colour scheme then the hood needs to be the same colour as the top paint colour - if you go for a black and red scheme then that makes the choice of hood material easy!

Having fitted the correct high ratio cwp to my sedan I now have the previous low ratio cwp from a cabrio, that I fitted in 1970, going begging.   Would you like it for a spare?

Simon, I was thinking about your comment about wanting it in black and yellow but thinking of Modestine. I wouldn't worry too much about having it the same colour as one other car in the whole club which is in a different country. Think of me - I own a red Fulvia. Common as muck.

Augustas invading Aprilia space!
Here is my Twopenny worth on the single/double colour question.
Attached is the list I asked Lancia for in 1981  about colours when I was 10 years from actually putting paint on my car.
There is only one combination of colours not the usual body all same and wings same or black is the 5th down (brown and grey) which I cannot remember ever seeing (and does not sound alluring to me).
I have always liked maroon/black (obviously) BUT it does have to be the correct maroon. I painted the body initially and the maroon looked "modern". I cannot really explain why but perhaps it was just a bit bright. I went back to the paint mix place and they added blue and I have been very happy since.

However, having discussed authenticity my Aprilia is painted with a 1960s Fiat blue and my Flavia Sport is painted with a 1960s Ferrari blue so whatever I say is obviously suspect!!!
