What’s the term for a car that, compared to the rest of its body has a different color for its roof panel down to its pillars, usually black?
Here’s an example of what I mean: https://images.app.goo.gl/a4GEgT7kedfnY2aP9

Two-tone, is the common description.

I call it 2 tone...as it is 2 colors. It is not usually black. Many are black. Many are white. White is a cooler color that reflects the sun away while black absorbs it into the metal making the car hot inside(meaning you got to have ice cold beer) Also black shows up the seagull and pigeon poo(which mostly is white) so you are always washing the car.
Some are also checkered with black and yellow squares Check out the taxi's in NYC. It is in their name.

Two tone, or if you were back in the 1950's , it would be tu-tone

Two tone or black over white, (for example if the roof and pillars are black and the rest of the car is white).

Two Tone. Was common in the '50's, even some three-tone cars.
Current Minis can come with one color body, black window high, white top -- three tone.
