Sage green traveller?

Postby Sidney'61 » Tue Jul 19, 2011 11:42 pm

Hiya!
I was just reading info on minor colours available and noticed that sage green was introduced on the traveller in Feb 1959 yet discontinued in march of the same year so was made for only a very limited time, looking at the chassis numbers and proportion of travellers to saloons and other colours available my guess would be that there were only about 400 sage green travellers built, has anyone here got one? or in fact ever seen one? :o

I saw a sage green saloon in Suffolk last Tuesday (19th July). Are they as rare?

Sage green was use on saloons from May '56 to Mar '59, almost 3 years so is not particularly rare it's just that for some reason they only started using it on travellers in feb '59 before withdrawing it completely from the range in March. Seems a bit of strange decision to me.
