Middlebridge 56 Color

Post by Andreas H. » Fri Jun 30, 2017 3:00 pm

Hello!

Is the color of Nr. 56 a Reliant color, or is it some California Sage?

Regards,
Andreas

It is one of two cars with that Middlebridge paint code but Middlebridge's paint codes don't seem to match with the Reliant colours, unless it is 99 which is special order.

Equally, the two Middlebridges with that paint code are different shades of green, although the other has been resprayed so it may have been sage green originally.

The other Middlebridge listed as sage green on Mick's website has a different paint code.

The closest I know of is Ford Crystal Green but Middlebridge was playing around with paint colours, particularly pearlescent at the time, so it could be bespoke.
