What color are the boards in the boot painted on a 52 mm. Are they black or silver.

I've never seen boot boards on ANY Minor that came in silver from the factory. Flat black, surely.
I have two Minors in upstate New York. One is the 1961 Traveller my dad bought new that year in London, where I was born. It's had a hard life but is still running cheerfully at 54K miles. The second is the oldest Minor confirmed to survive in North America, a LHD high-light Tourer built in April 1949. It's a total basket case, but will be restored over the coming years.

On my 65 they are flat black. On the 52 they are silver. If silver is incorrect I will paint them flat black.
Thanks for the reply

My '54 boards are black. Never seen silver boot boards on any Morris Minor I have looked round at the Nationals before now...….
Best wishes,
Mike.

I'd have to agree with John and Mike. I have never seen anything other than black boards.
I have a very original 52 sidevalve tourer that has been untouched since the late sixties and it has got black boards and I'm pretty sure they have never touched or repainted.
