The original BMC manufacturers code for Old English White is WT 3. This should mean something to a decent paint company. There are variations however, so it'll be up to whoever paints it to try and match the paint as well as he can. Most older cars have been re-sprayed by now so unless you know what was used previously, paint matching can be very tricky.

Thanks for that .The paint supplier quoted two codes .....one of them being WT3 the other was WT03.
So I'll go down with WT3. I realise it may not match perfectly as you say but close will be good enough for me.
Thanks again
