High Impact Colors

From 1969 to 1973 buyers of all new domestic Chrysler cars could order their new cars with special, extra-cost paint. These are the High Impact Paint (HIP) colors. In 1971, High Impact Paint was a $14.05 option. Cars that were originally painted with one of these colors have become very desirable among collectors. Their names are as colorful as the paints.  The following is a list of the ten optional High Impact Paints that were popular on many muscle cars, along with a best-effort representation of the color scanned from original paint chips.
