Our November 1958 Minor is 'BMC Dark Green - GN12' and originally definitely had grey wheels, grey interior trim and a grey coach line. I have no reliable information about the grill - I will need to dig out a cine film taken in ~1965 showing the car coming out of my parent's garage after I had resprayed it (the original green was heavily blue tinged, which might have been quite the fashion with 'blue rinses', but not on a car!).
The radiator surround is black, and has always been black I believe, the front panel is body colour and again always has been.
At the end of the restoration in 1998, a cream grill colour was chosen as better complementing the dark green paint colour - and still does! Especially with the cream interior trim replacing the original dull grey, thus requiring a cream coach line.
