Looks like that Rio red in your post Paul. Was that a colour available on a BX?
No. DS/ID and SM '68 - '73. Looks like I'll never be owning a car in that colour then! :(

It was - I didn't really want to sell it, but I couldn't justify keeping both it and the GS, and I wasn't prepared to sell that! At least it went to a good home, and is currently the subject of a restoration that'll hopefully keep it on the road for years to come :D

Ah ! Well done =D>

I've just checked out 'EKV' on the very comprehensive/best (IMHO) 'Glasurit' COLOUR-ONLINE selector chart :wink:

Which comes back as 'ROUGE OPERA' = UK spec. 'Morello' then ! Just like (Neil1) below !

Albeit the owner states it another colour 'Morello Red' :?

So maybe only Dean's TZD Turbo, which was (As it's long gone to meet its maker :( ) was in 'Delage Red' and possibly another one which Tim got the 'Zenith' interior from the scrapped BX @ WHM ?
