Patrick R,

They do seem a bit dear to me as well. I like the tip in windows on the 67. I really wish mine had those.

Patrick,

The colour is Coffee Bean Brown which just happens to be the same colour on DRH14434 when it left Crewe in March 1973.

Father-in-law had the top section of the car resprayed with a darker brown after he purchased it as a "restoration special" to minimise import duty when it was shipped to Australia after he acquired it in the mid-1980's. The lower bodywork remained Coffee Bean Brown.

I have to admit I wasn't a fan of the colour but it did grow on me later on when I started using Meguiars products on the advice of my US mate who was an experienced classic car restorer. The deep gloss of the Meguiars detailing products improved the appearance significantly.

Yes Ross, they were a great feature.

Agree David,
Some colours do get better the longer you own it.
