Matt Black Minor?

Postby Boomlander » Sun Aug 07, 2016 4:44 pm

Hi All,
Talking to a chap at a local car show today and after admiring our Series 2 he told me that he had located a "Barn Find" minor in a rare Matt Black body finish.
I said that I didn't realise Matt Black was an option on the Minor but he assured me it was.....Any thoughts?? :-?

I suppose if you buy a gloss black one and don't polish it for fifty years....

I think he's pulling your leg.

Yeah I think that the original paint had died years ago and no amount of T Cut will bring it back to gloss. :roll:

I'm pretty sure the matte paint fad is much, much more recent than the Minor.

Agreed, the Americans are quite keen on flat black for their street rods. :)

Black itself was pretty rare. cellulose paint was never super gloss. factory matte never happened
