W50 Graphics with Turbo: Cameo White with Nightwatch Blue Lower and blue accents
In 1980 the two tone paint scheme was carried over for all Formula models with a few striking changes. On white Formulas the lower color was changed from charcoal to blue
and Platinum and Red (Francisco Red for 1980) cars were painted marroon instead of charcoal on the lower body. The Standard Formula carried over the more mellow appearance with the bird
decal on the rear spoiler and small Formula callout on the rear bumper. The W50 package continued to add the large FORMULA door panel graphic and FORMULA
lettering on the rear spoiler. If you got the new Turbo engine you had the letters TURBO FORMULA emblazoned across the rear spoiler instead.
