MK1 Colours

Post  Naughty40 on Thu Oct 13, 2011 9:14 am

Can some one advise me of this colour please,it appears to be a caramel/coffee colour as best as I can describe it,I have aquired a Mk1 in rather poor shape,and was led to believe that the person selling had lost the paper work (hmmm sucker)and duly applied for a duplicate V5,only to be told that the reg number was now assigned to another vehicle,but I could apply for an age related plate after it is restored and mot'd(so that will be in about 5 years time),can't really bear to break it after seeing this lovely colour,and was wondering if some one might have name/paintcode

Elf? I don't remember any brown colour available for the Mk I Elf. Arianca started with the Mk IIs, I believe. There was a Mk I, Whitehall Beige listed for the Mk II Hornet (never seen one), but the roof was Florentine Blue so I can't imagine even BMC putting that blue over a true beige colour.

Chas,

This is from the Sept 61 sales brochure. All the Mk1 colours available from launch. If you want a better copy I can email it to you. Very Happy

I concur Al, a picture is what we need. If it is indeed Ariance Beige, then I suspect it may also turn out to be a Mk2 not a Mk1 - if the colour is original

Eldest son Chris ( www.whights.co.uk ) had some paint mixed 2 pack Arianca Beige and has done a sample for me,he likes it so much that he is going to spray his minivan that colour with cream roof and get it sign written,
