Classic Cars that Look Best in Black

Classic Cars that Look Best in Black

Like Johnny Cash or Darth Vader, some things just look better in black.  Cars are no exception.  Black paint can wear many hats and, depending on the vehicle, this can range anywhere from classy to sinister.  Even the subtle differences in a car’s black paint can rework its look.  Today many automakers offer their top-end models in a choice of blacks such as the current Mercedes S-Class, which can be optioned in standard Black, Magnetite Black Metallic, Obsidian Black Metallic, and designo Mocha Black Metallic.  Then of course you can opt for black wheels and the Night Styling Package (which basically blacks out the car).

Before all of the matte black paint (and vinyl wraps), midnight editions, smoked taillights, and black wheels craze of recent years, though, certain classics cruised the streets in high style simply sporting their deep glossy black paint.  Without further ado, these are our top picks for the best black classic cars.
