NEW YORK, Dec. 28.—Car colors will follow clothes in 1923; blues and fawn hues will predominate and wheels and tires will be much smaller, it was predicted at the Grand Central Palace here today, where preparations are in order for the national automobile show opening January 6.
The show will reveal more cars than have been shown at any previous exhibition. Every attempt has been made to keep the new models secret, but it is declared the 1923 cars will rest on small wheels similar to the ones revealed at the London and Paris shows. That means more revolutions but just as much speed, say the makers.
Fawn color and soft blues will predominate, it is said, because they are restful to the eyes and nerves. Paris and New York modes in gowns have been studied in working out car color schemes and in a number of cases Parisian and American interior decorators have lent their talents to the creation of limousine interiors. Wall space in the larger limousines for etchings and small paintings is said to be a new wrinkle.
Closed cars will predominate over open cars, but then many of the new closed cars will have devices by which they can be changed into open cars in a twinkling.
Engines will remain about the same. Manufacturers say that engines have been constructed along the same lines for about two years because they have reached the peak.
