    Is it the original colour do you know? and what year cruiser if it is the original might help a bit.

    I'm guessing 1971. Look at those cool clear lenses on the turn signals. Try to take a picture of the dash or the inside of the glovebox, that might help us.

    Also note that some LC colors were not imported to the U.S. so much of our advice might be of no use to you in New Zealand.

    It looks like a faded spring green to me.

    well, if it is "original color and a 73" as you say in post #4, this chart shows it could NOT be Capri Blue as that was a 69-71 color.

    BTW, what makes you think the PO painted the floor (who would do just that) and - in fact - the floor is just not sun faded like the body and looks newer?

    If you look at top photo you can see where PO has hand painted under drivers door and they have hand painted the floor below your feet also, it almost looks more green than blue.

    But it could just be really faded !!

    ahhh... I assumed these were anomalies in the low resolution jpg image. nevertheless, your year rig does not line up with that color (so that chart says)
