The car (v12 5 pass coupe) along with a 34 Packard roadster that mentions having a "V8", has been listed on Hemmings for what seems like over a year to me.  I must be wired differently.  If I want to sell something, I don't want to have it out in the public eye, receiving calls and inquiries and emails with all the time and work it takes to respond professionally for a year or longer.  If it has been over a year, you don't have it priced correctly.

 I examined this car. Good from afar, far from good. Repaint shows shrinkage everywhere. Wood rot at door bottoms. Interior is very tired and starting to split on seam. Lots of leaks underneath. Rusted windshield frame. Lots of nice chrome where redone. Car has potential but needs a lot of work.  RM sold a similar bodied car fully restored for $105,000.  I was very interested but owner stuck hard to his price.

Wheels need to be fender color.

Do you mean for your own individual taste,

or for historical accuracy?  To my taste, it's the

interaction of colors that is interesting, and the

third tone adds harmony.

 

I might not have chosen this particular color

combination, but if was possible in 1933, it's okay 

with my sensibilities.

Both.   Typically what I like was also what was correct in period.    I can date a car's restoration within 5 years by what the colors are.    Instead of going with the latest fad, guys should choose factory colors.   And NOT use a period advertisement's gaudy colors because those were rarely ever actually produced.
