Green has a miltary look about it - maybe light green is OK but I always liked dark blue on the rounder shaped trucks. Whatever the colour I'm sure it's going to look great.

I think though personally I would just build it as an old prime mover, I don't particularly like the red one in the photo.
When I lived in Wodonga, VIC, there was an old B Model restored by a sign company. It was yellow, I think it only moved trailers around at the workshop and did trips around town. It looked really nice.

That looks sweet. You can buy Prowler Purple in a spray can, it's made by Testors, if that helps you at all.

Try Autobarn to get your Holden colour made up, they are doing a lot of late model colours now with all the superdooper pearls. They can do it in either a 100ml tin or a big rattle can.
