original wheel color?

did airstream ever use any color besides black (I know...black isn't actually a color) for their steel wheels??

While working on my brakes/bearings this weekend, I noticed what looks like a silver/blue metalic color under the more recent poorly sprayed black?

just curious.

should have mentioned, I was asking about the color of the '64 overlander's wheels.

I don't think the wheels were ever "colors"...that was an after-market owner thing.
We are tossing around the idea of colored shoes for Birdy...I've seen some that look very nice!
