#1 Yet another colour question!

Post by Sven » Sun Jan 13, 2019 9:59 am

Morning all,

Having trawled here and xkedata, I cannot find the name of this colour:

I am guessing that it might be a modern paint colour, unless someone can help?

TIA!

That looks like opalescent dark blue to me. Same colour as my car.

Regards

Hi Richard....have a look at 860005 on xke data....its odb and has quite a few photos..the group photo on the page look similar to your photo...the rest look darker....but exact colour is very difficult to see on a computer screen..this car was i think restored at CMC so you could contact them for paint code....Steve

Thanks, both!

Helps narrow down the detective trail - it was the grey tinge that was particularly attractive, but I guess sunlight makes everything different!

Did also realise that Turrino wheels are UK based - they might help...

Now back to the interior negotiations...I want oxblood...my 'passenger' wants tobacco!

Cheers
