Not mine. I just offered to help David K (57DODGECONV) post up some photos. I am interested in the cowl data tag interpretation. So far I see 2543 = 57 Dodge Coronet D500 Convertible and 293 = Torqueflite. Others (frwl, RDP, LD3_Greg) can/will chime in to help with the interpretation (I hope).

I see SCHEDule = 0111 = Jan. 11, 1957 Scheduled build date, PaiNT =4LPL (Glacier White and Gallant Gold), TRiM = 110 = Pellon Vinyl and Silver Strata Fabric – Gold and Black, and 395, 421 (?), 452, 285, 502, 513 and 585 on the cowl data tag

I know that you are joking Mike.

BUT if I had to guess I would say a late 1960's/early 1970's Dodge Challenger type "Army Green" (at least that is what I used to call it back in the day (so we are kind of on the same wavelength there)). Apparently it might be better )officially) called "Medium Green Poly":

No problem. Happy to help.

This is the colour combo that your car was painted with when it left the factory:
