Not colour but only one I've seen - the team's colours were very dark green and white.

This may be useless info as I understand that these '60s ICI codes mean nothing to modern paint suppliers, but according to John Baxter's 1967 book Motor Racing Team Colours and Markings the Team Chamaco Collect colours were:

Connaught Green (ICI paint reference P030-3302) with ... White band on nose. Wheels - Silver

According to a post on the Mini Cooper Register, "Connaught Green" is identical to BMC paint code GN 18 and is also the same as that used on the works Jaguars in period:
