I have a 1957 6/90, series 2, painted dark blue with tan upholsetery. I remember seeing a list of bodywork and interiors colour schemes and noting that blue was not among those colours, but cannot remember where I saw the list. What were the factory colour schemes for bodywork and interior for this car?

The car is in Bulawayo Zimbabwe. Were different colour schemes used here? Were these cars shipped having been assembled in UK or assembled somewhere like Mutare, where I believe BMC had an assembly plant?

Hi John

We have a scan of the 1957 6/90 Brochure on the ‘Brochure & Catalogues’ page which can be found under the ‘Technical Area’ main heading of the website. The brochure contains a list of the various colour options for that year, and as you say, Blue doesn’t appear to be included.

I’m afraid I am not able to help regarding colours in other markets, but Jeffery Bridges, the technical adviser for the 6/90 might know more.

Thanks Bob. I have found the brochure and assume the S3 would be similar to S2 colours. having found some old paint under the blue, it seems to have been Swiss grey, although the reupholstered, Biscuit upholstery, did not appear to be an option with Swiss Grey. John
