Photo-a-Day (Thursday, 21st September, 2017)
1940s (1 of 3)
Love this shade of green, its the same colour as my garage doors
Is that car a Morris?.
This 1939 Minx was next to our Hillman Minx. I agree about the beautiful shade of green. Ours is 1959 but is still an "oldie", (like us!), and didn't look out of place. A brilliant day despite "iffy" weather.
British Racing Green, my first car was an Hillman Minx in this colour.
Excellent photo, is it a Royal navy Vehicle?
I wondered if it was a naval vehicle as well!
It's a very smart looking car anyway.
A credit to whoever owned the car,it is BRG and cellulose polished much better than the modern paint,easy to touch up too.
It is a Royal Navy vehicle but the shield on the front is a Royal Marines badge which of course, is a branch of the Royal Navy.
I think the paint is Kemitone Burger Coach body paint, and most likely hand painted
