BU37, there was a slightly lighter shade introduced on later models apparently

I have a later model that will need some paint in the future and I have been trying to find the right colour. Trafalgar Blue seemed a little too dark so I thought that it might be Teal but I am not sure. Is there a paint code for this later shade of Trafalgar Blue? Thanks.

Teal Blue was only used on late (1970/71) Travellers and not used on saloons.

The same code (BU 37) was used for all variants of Trafalgar Blue so you'll need a skilled painter or paint supplier to match the colour. Most of the old BMC colours which were used for long periods have several variants. Of course, your car is unlikely still to be wearing its original coat anyway.....
