Floor Pan colour


I was removing the old factory undercoating ,grease,oil and dirt from the floor pan and found the floor was painted/coated with an olive coloured paint/sealer.

Did Pontiac back in the day use the same colour for all models to protect the floor from the elements?

This sure looks like it was done at the factory.

Thanks

From what I've seen, I'd say yes.

Some floor supports need rust repair but darn nice for a 60 year old car.The underside is the best part of this car ,unfortunately water sat in many areas that couldn't drain and now those areas need some metal repair.It is looking cleaner but only after countless hours scrapping and degreasing laying on my back as I have no lift.cry

Canadian built GM cars of that era were painted the body colour under neath. In the U.S. they were painted red oxide.

On my original paint 55 2 dr sedan the undercoating is a 1/2 inch thick. Where I have been using rust check to try and loosen up the undercoating the paint is the original colour black. My other 55 2 dr sedan is the factory original colour blue. Back in the early 70,s I painted the underside with tremclad and a paint brush. I never sanded it and the paint is peeling and the blue is showing in a few places. Future plans are to really clean it up and sand and repain black which the car was painted in 1973.

That undercarriage is really amazing for a 57.

Paul, that is such an amazing 57 Pontiac survivor. I know your car very well because i knew its previous owner. If your 57 was mine, i would be cherishing that sweet time machine. Cheers. George
