After much debate and discussion over the last few weeks. I have carried out a number
of back to back tests of various different paint shades that have at one time or
another been suggested as "The original" BMC engine green.I can now confirm with
100% certainty that the most commonly used colour on BMC engines was British Standard
Middle Bronze Green (BS 223). Some engines were painted in a darker green that I
strongly believe to be Dark Bronze Green.
