1959 Chevrolet Impala 865 Automobile | Ritchie Bros. Auctioneers (

If I had a D8 bulldozer to sell, Mecum or Barrett-Jackson wouldn't be the first places I'd think of to take it!

Anyone know what the paint (1209) decodes to?  The American codes are all 9XX-A.  The interior code is for copper, although someone ordered a hybrid green vinyl with the correct inserts for copper when they redid the car.    

Not my cup of tea, but a buddy (former Caterpillar peddler) out in Edmonton thinks he might be able to get it cheap.  

Love how whoever reassembled the engine put the valve covers on upside-down and on the wrong heads.

Here's the 59 GM paint book pages.
Little confused by the wording about 2 tone on both pages
I would have thought that code 1209 would be 12 = Gothic Gold Met over 09 = Roman Red. This would be consistent with a copper interior.
