Can anyone supply a 2k paint code for the correct colour used on a 1963 mini van 850 engine please?
Had a quick troll through the forums but couldnt find anything.
Thanks.

Would the 850 van be the same as the Morris 850? Or were commercial vehicles different?

In 1963 it would have been the same colour as an 850, both engines then were UK made.

Thanks for the replies. Yes i assume both van and saloon would have same paint.
This is an austin van built in england.

Anyone know the correct colour? A code? Or a name? Or a sample?

I believe it was called Land Rover Bronze Green. Basically the same dark green that early Landies are usually painted...

Cheers, Ian

I have it listed as BS223 Mid Bronze Green. But no factory documents to prove it sorry.

There is a bit of info on the UK Forum
