Kev. Was Glacier white the only shade of white used on Princesses straight out of the factory? My car's previous owner said it was Rover or Leyland White. The Rover white I bought looks totally wrong. Boycie.

Yes, Glacier white was 18-22 Series Princess and it changed to Leyland white for Princess 2 in 1978.

A few more for you, Kev.

(I don't have the codes to hand right now, but can add them later)

Roughly in date order. Note the ultra rare clearcoat metallics at the end of the list, used on late 1981 and early 1982 cars.

I have a feeling I saw an Applejack Princess on the road back in the 1980s, but I can't be 100% sure ;)

Citron
Jade Green metallic
Black
Brooklands Green
Denim Blue metallic
Ermine (also known as White and Leyland White)
Bronze metallic
Pewter metallic
Silver Leaf metallic (clearcoat)
Oporto (clearcoat)
Opaline (clearcoat)
Princess 2 2000HL, Reynard metallic
Princess 100 Club Special

I know of one early Princess wearing it's factory Applejack or Citron. I can't remember which paint it was, they're quite similar when viewed separately. I can't think many were done in that colour. I believe some late Marinas were painted the same.

I owned a 1982 Ambassador VDP (DUD477Y) in Oporto red from 1995-2000 and a 1983 Ambassador 2.0 HL (BPA250Y) in Opaline green from 1997-2000. I currently have a 1981 Princess 1.7 HL (DGC 974X) in Silver Leaf. I don't ever remember seeing a Princess in Oporto or Opaline they must have been very rare when new and probably extinct now :( shame as they were lovely colours and made the Princess and Ambassador look more modern.
1981 PRINCESS 1.7HL SILVER LEAF
1982 PRINCESS 1.7HL NAUTILUS BLUE
1982 PRINCESS 1.7HL EMBERGLOW RED
1983 AMBASSADOR 1.7L NAUTILUS BLUE

'Sandglow' seems to have been missed off the list. Very popular wedge colour was that. Had 2 myself at different ends of the model line up, a 1700L and a 2200HLS both will sorrel brown interiors.
