What color primer 70 Z car?

I have found car 136, "Not for sale" been sitting years I will keep after him, someday it will be mine hopefully as he is never going to touch it. Car is gold, and has the best color change I have ever seen if in fact that's the case, under the seats it's BRG and that's the only place I can find green. Is this a good color change or greenish primer?

That's a question I've wondered about myself. There are places where I have sanded through grey and hit red oxide with no apparent color paint in between... Makes me wonder, I figure red oxide was probably still the color of choice in the early 70's, expecially under the typical solid colors available then. I always thought that it was mid late 70's that gray came into major use and red fell to it's current almost not available status. Of course who shoots laquer primer anymore??

Yep! Red oxide primer. I see it on 26th and 27th. You know how the seat brackets are painted black? Same black on the front of the radiator support behind the grill? I was noticing at the ZCCA convention car show - on the original '70 with 23,000 miles - the black is brush painted.

Just pulled a door off my 11/72 build date 240, some gray primer under one hinge bare rusty steel under the other.....?? on mine it is easy to see the brush marks in all of the black paint, especally under/behind the quarter windows.
