I only saw the car after the post Thruxton rebuild. It was a metallic green but had a central stripe broadening out over the nose, this was either yellow or orange....cannot remember which, sorry.

As far as I can remember, green and orange, the contours of the stripe following those of the yellow originally used.

Green and orange pre-Thruxton crash and then green and pale yellow when rebuilt and driven by John L'Amie
