The original paint on my '58 Impala is Tropic Turquoise on the roof over Aegean Turquoise on the body. My question concerns the color of the piece at the inside top of the door (see picture) What residual paint that was on the pieces is the lighter Tropic color, but for some reason, it just doesn't look right to me. I can't find any online references to tell me which color it should be. Can someone tell me what color these pieces should match on a two-tone car?

If remnant original paint was that color, then that's correct. I have the same colors on my 58 and that piece looks odd until you stick the door panel underneath then it matches the interior color better than the darker turquoise.
