Forest Green camaro

I'm not sure if the 1969 color was actually forest green, or hunter green, but was wondering how many people would buy it if it were an option on the fifth gen cars.

It was called Fathom Green in 69, and yes... I'd love a 5th gen in that color.

My '70's original paint was forest green (and that was the name of the color in '70). Now, it's more of a combination of that and a rust/dirt/primer color. I would have been all over a new one of the same color (the green color, that is).

I had a '68 SS in British Green. Similar color. Wish I still had that car. Only 2.3% that color in '68.

That 2012 ZL1 'vert in SEMA is called Unripened Green. Nice classy shade.

I also like that shade of green. However, I hated the Polo Green on the 4th gens. It was a dark green but just had no pop to it at all. It was very dull, bland looking.

I think that SEMA ZL1 color is going to be offered on the '14 Vettes.

Watching the recent auctions and had a '67 Corvette on the block and they mentioned that its Goodwood Green was the number one color for that year, so did so quick and dirty checking of color popularity of that era.

Number one Corvette colors:

'63 - Riverside Red
'64 - Riverside Red
'65 - Nassau Blue
'66 - Marina Blue
'67 - Goodwood Green
'68 - British Green
'69 - ???

OK so let's look at top 5 first gen Camaro colors.

1967
16.5% - Bolero Red
14% - Butternut Yellow
12% - Granada Gold
10.5% - Marina Blue
10% - Ermine White

1968
12% - Matador Red
11% - LeMans Blue
9.5% - Ash Gold
9% - Ermine White
8% - Butternut Yellow

1969
12% - Hugger Orange
11.5% - LeMans Blue
10.5% - Fathom Green
8% - Frost Green
7.5% - Dover White

So it looks like that was a fairly popular color back when, not as popular as the "right" (no green/aqua in hue OR name) blue that was pretty darn popular. Not that is is relevant or anyone here really cares, but I'd rather had a "right" blue before the green. It is nice looking though!

Love that color! My C5 vette was a dark metallic green and so was my 97 Z28!
