Try Auto Paint Direct
Sebring Red was a Ford colour from '72-75 (guess who worked for Ford!)
Amazing what old bits of paper come out of the cupboard....Sebring Red Code E03F38 224-63-56
Not sure about the blue.

Although strangely, this particular Darvi never had those colours! Dick built it for the sponsor of the period, who did a disappearing act & the car was "lost" for some years. Then Peter Sleight found it & painted it light blue & white!

Glad the bodywork seems to fit (ish). Have fun fettling! I still can't quite believe it all went in the camper!! Looking forward to seeing you soon

I have been out in the rain and there are no bits of the Darvi left. My records confirm Sebring Red and Tahiti blue but no further information on codes I am afraid.

Message from Andy Parker(Bill Rutter's "spanners") from his ICI days...
Tahiti Blue was AF45 & Sebring Red was 9069. These codes would have been preceeded by another code that indicated what type of paint was being supplied e.g. P030 was cellulose & P376 was synthetic unless it was metallic
Hope that helps!

Never let it be said that we don't share sensitive car data on the forum!

The spirit in the 750 Formula has always impressed me. Thank you all for the help and advice.

I've just had a look in the big heap of "bits I don't use any more" round the back of the house, and I have what are probably the pair of side pods in Martin's photo from the Mk6, still in the blue colour.

I don't know if these are any use to you, but you are welcome to them if you want a trip to the frozen north (Manchester).

Cheers

Dave

Hi Dave

Thank you for letting me know. As you are a long way from me I will try my luck with the paint codes that have kindly been provided but if I do find myself in a position where a colour match would work then I will take you up on the offer, Thanks again.
