British Racing Green ?

Postby JHarley » Thu Jul 25, 2019 2:10 am

Hi all,

In my recent post "interior colour change?", ManyMinors told me that British Racing Green wasn't a colour that BMC/BL offered for the Minor, but I've seen a colour on Charles Ware's website called "British Racing Green", can anyone shed some light on this?, any advice would be greatly appreciated, I'll leave the link to the page.

Best Regards,

Joe

The photographs are simply showing different vehicles painted in different colours, the chart in the link at the top of the photographs shows what was available from BMC.

There is more than one shade of British Racing Green (BRG). BRG covers a spectrum of deep rich greens.

Charles Ware's website doesn't always quote 'correct' Minor colours. I've seen 'British Racing Green' used to describe 'Almond Green' and 'Dark Green', as well as 1950's Maroon interiors described as 'Mulberry'.
