Hi Kent,

The "White and Blue Racing" color scheme as it was called in one of the 
brochures was available on 1968 model year cars, aka the first year of 
Federal P6 production with twin servos.  I have one now and my 
grandfather had two in the '70's and 80's.   I've come across a few 
others over the years too (white and blue federal cars that is...)

Trivia question:  what was the name of the blue color (hint:  not zircon 
blue & not corsica blue)?
