Agreed. Take her to the dealer and let her pick what color she likes. If he’s paying, he can pick the price he likes.I believe the OP is asking about the Willys Sport, as opposed to the just the Willys.
OP: if the gf wants black and you get her white, that will establish a certain pattern in that relationship. Black is indeed a PITA to own; perhaps Granite would give you two a happy medium.
