Being the new guy on the circuit, I think I posted the following in the wrong section of the forum. I apologise if I did.

That being said. Does anyone have, or is there, a list of colours and colour combinations for the series II and III Rapiers with colour codes. I have a almost complete list for the Alpines and Tigers. Did Sunbeam use the same colour codes and (as I asked) a list of colour combinations for each series.

I owned one with the medium blue with a darker blue trim 1958 series II, back in the 1965 to 1969. Father had a 1960 series III with a powder blue with a medium blue convertible from 1960 - 1965. I am reworking a series II and need assistance. Any help would be appreciated.

I have lifted two pictures of the two colours and added here for reference only. The Series II are the colours of my car and the Series III are the colours of my father's. My question now is what colours are thes by name and by number?

First of all welcome to the forum

Secondly you might want to move your post to the Information section.

And third, try here;

Thank you both. I should have responded earlier but recently business has kept me from doing anything fun. I will have to check out the SROC Rapier Guide.

There is a list with colours specified to each series Rapier and it is presented in the SROC Rapier Guide at pages 007 to 010.

Hello and welcome to the Forum. This is as good an area as anywhere for your question.
I'm more a Fastback man by I would say the colours are:-
Ser II Windsor Blue (23) & Corinth Blue (21), although I thought these were Series III/IIIA colours normally??
Ser III Moonstone (19) & Powder Blue (25)
I'm sure someone else will confirm or otherwise - The numbers for the colours are definitely correct & I'm reasonably sure the colour combinations of the cars are as stated. Cheers. G
