Trying to decide what color to paint my 71 javelin.
My interior I all done in its original maroon color which I like.
The car was silver and I really don't like silver.
Anybody have that color interior?
What else looks good with maroon?

A non-AMC color would be a metallic rose.  I believe '58 Nash's had a nice one.  Also '56 Olds which was the only extra cost color available.

Black, red tones, white, silver and tans are the traditional color combinations with maroon interiors.
Jaguar had a grey.
I kind of think the black or white with the traditional red Javelin stripes would look good.

Navy blue metallic or pearl. With those gorgeous curves, the sun will light up the pearl and really make the color jump. You could even go with a dark red/maroon T stripe to tie it all together.

Its a bold choice. Buy a half pint of paint (or a spray can) and paint a door so that you can make a good decision. See if you like the color against the interior.

Ive seen a few cars (one was a older ferrari) with a maroon interior and a lt metallic blue exterior color.  they were pretty stunning. '67 mustangs had a nice shade, maybe a little light. or that glacial blue from corvettes.

I like the pearl. White would look VG, but black with red pearl would be awesome - I,ve only seen his once on a bike. Light hitting the curves on a 71 would make it stand out from anything else - even at night!

Nicest 71 Javelin I ever saw had the 1 year only red interior in corduroy with white exterior. 401 with a 4 speed and absolutely no other options. I still think the original Silver is the best choice though with maybe a bit more metallic and a few extra coats of clear.
