Paints and Colours

The Association has been lucky to have been loaned original, period paint cards produced by the ‘Belco’ paint company who provided paints specifically for the Austin Motor Company. The cards cover all Austin models from 7 to 20hp and come complete with details of lining colours and ‘reveals’. It is interesting to note that the number of cards in the 1936 set is 32 whereas the 1939 set has shrunk to 8. An earlier set that is known of (dated 1932) is rumoured to have 65 cards in it, so the colour ranges clearly diminish over the years.
The Archive Project would be interested to hear of any other resources that people have that would enhance the information that we already hold..
