Can you tell me what colour is this Landmaster.

Thanks,

Hi Jaggu, for Mercedes Benzes of the 50s, this colour would be called "cream". BTW, whatever happened to tracking that parcel (which now is obviously lost) of mine in 2012? I know you were trying to help but you didn't reply to my messages. Just wondering.

Here is part of a Duco shade card of the 70s showing Ambassador and President colours - maybe it could be of some use.

My 62 model Ambassador OHV was originally Smoke Grey, there are some traces of the paint in the engine bay. I will try and get some pictures, though it can vary greatly in a photo.

Wonderful forum this! The breadth and depth of information shared never ceases to amaze me

Dear Sir, I have bought a 1990 Premier Padmini, and the RC book was not updated with the color of the vehicle. The owner mentioned that the colour was called "Pot Grey", however I do not know if it is a factory colour. Can you please help?
