Type 85 Paint Colours 

There is a lot of confusion on paint colours. This is a page to relate the paint colour to the paint code to a physical photo of a car. If you'd like to add your car to this page, please email me a photo with the paint code and year, and I'll add it to this page. Type 85 original colours only please (no custom colours). Let me know if you want to be credited for your photo.
