I think that might be 'Venetian Red' Tom? 'Delage Red' looks alot darker.

I'm taking it over to Rob at Chevronics, who posted this car for sale on their Facebook page.

As for the colour, I couldn't find any markings on the inside of the wings or anything, just need to wait for this rain to stop so I can have ago at it with some t-cut and see what can be done about the finish, someone has attacked the bonnet with a touch up pen to cover up stone chips which doesn't look great though.

Venetian red or rouge furio as they call it in france is the more common bright red.

This is delage red;

Tom it's NOT 'Delage Red' (as already pointed by Paul), also the one /\ (which was one of Richard's) IIRC he used some 'Ford paint colour' from a rattle-can to spray up the front bumper !

Here's another members BX which according to MK2 'paint chip' paint selection also looks like its a 'Delage Red' too :-

The /\ two (photo's/quotes) were take from THIS thread (for ref.), so there you have it !

The only others BX's which I can remember which had the 'Delage Red' paintwork, which IMHO is a very nice colour when nicely polished up 8)

That's that sorted out then . . . its brown! :D

Assuming that SM is in an original factory colour, that would be AC 424 ‘Rouge de Rio or AC426 ‘Rouge de Grenade’;

According to a Thatcham Methods Manual, Morello Red (EKV) was the last non metallic red they came in but Morello Red = Rouge Opera according it this site:

Hmm I see can't argue with a brochure! I was just going on what was posted in the thread where Richard first displayed the 14. What colour was my little 14 then? Didn't look like venetian red, and I wouldn't describe it as red - more burgundy. Would be great to know, as I loved the colour!

Anyway, TZD looks bloomin lovely! (whats your name dude?)

My 14TGE was |Delage Red, but one thing to bear in mind is that there are 3 different paint codes for Delage Red, an AC code, and 2 different all letter codes as normally seen on BX's.

Awww thanks Richard. Hmm a conundrum, your TGE was the same colour as mine (Delage red) but the same colour number as Andrew's but different in appearance to said colour :-k

Looks like that Rio red in your post Paul. Was that a colour available on a BX?
