What's your favorite Grabber color?


Recommended Posts

I'm partial to the 71 metallic grabber green because it is s unique and pretty uncommon with blue being second.

I liked the Grabber Green in 1971 and ordered a Grabber Maverick that color with black vinyl roof and high back bucket seats. It is sitting by the barn where it was driven to and parked probably around 1980. In the background of this pic.

Something happened during my car build and it got painted twice at the factory. I had to sand down a spot once and there was two distinct layers of Green. I think the sticker price was $3,200 and it had everything but air cond. which I do not like. Even had 5 lug wheels part of the HD suspension package that cost an amazing $10.00 extra. You can say what you want about quality today but you sure could not beat the prices back then.

When a man is in the woods and talks and no women are there is he still wrong??:P

Green!

Blue is much more spectacular and I love it but I'd hesitate to have it on a car I'd own as I think I'd get tired of it after a while simply because it's too flashy.

Although Grabber Orange wasn't available for our cars, it's my favorite, especially with black stripes - I almost painted my '73 Mach that color. :cool:
