Does anyone know what colors were used on the Pop Cola Mercs of Benny Parsons and James Hylton ? I can't tell from the photos I have. It looks like BP's may be red and James car is gray with black roll cage but I can't get a good look. Thanks for any help.

First, although it's not obvious from photos the two cars are different exterior colors also. The Parsons car is Ford Poppy Red (just a tiny bit more orange than Chevy engine red-orange) and the Hylton car that won Talladega is a bright sports car red not far from Tamiya Bright Red.

Benny's Poppy Red cars were generally the same color inside and out. The cars had been yellow with light blue interior the year before so they would have needed to paint the inside and chassis regardless.

Hylton's car was bought from the Wood Brothers so what you're seeing is medium gray trunk spatter paint on the floors and rear firewall with semi-gloss black roll bars.
