Hi Group,

Had to show off my latest find. This is a North American west coast Export 1952 convertible. The car followed me home today and It is being looked over in the next few days to get an idea of overall condition. Has the 918 side valve engine, has all the original trim, old skinny bias-ply tires that still hold air after sitting in the dirt for many years. Floors in the back seat are gone but the front frame rails were solid enough that a good poke with the screwdriver was a no go smiling smiley so, as a project it's definitely on the better side of the fence.
This now joins my fleet of MM Series ll cars, I now have a 2dr 1953, a 4dr 1954, and this convert, 1952, along with my original project car a 1957 coupe that is 15+ years in the making. OH and I forgot a 1959 traveller. Of course these are all rescues from the scrapper in need of repair in various states of condition. At least I have saved a few pieces of history from the scrapper, at least until I die.

Potteries codes say the colour is Mid Green, can't seem to find a colour chart that has this name, anyone able to shed some light on this, or what it might really be?

For 1952 would be Mist Green. Here is a pic:

Hi gang,

Mike you are so right ! grinning smiley Bufferzone, in the Potteries ID list it calls out a Mid green, do you think it is a miss type or could there be multiple choices? As you can see the car has been painted, in fact there seems to be a yellow under the top blue so maybe even 2-3 paint jobs. I plan on getting into the trunk and maybe under the dash to see if there is original paint to be seen. Probably going to take a day or two since rain is on it's way and I have to clear a parking space in the shop first.

Appreciate the help.

Herewith Skilliters list Chris.

If it's been repainted, the colour is anyone's guess.
Google found both for Minors.

Until someone proves me wrong,
BSA Bantams were painted Mist Green

HI Mike,

Thanks for the info. The reason I'm asking is that the manufacturer chassis badge ID states that the car is FCE41150447 which with the Potteries web site ID list, it decodes to be a F-Series ll C-convertible, E-mid green, 4-export, 1-synthetic paint, this leaves me with the question that were talking about.
I haven'y got it moved yet, but when I do, maybe I will narrow it down with a good inspection of unpaintable locations in the body. Personally I like the BSA Mist Green which looks a lot like the one that Bufferzone posted earlier and should I get to a full restoration that colour should keep it original.

Appreciate the help. Will keep you posted on the results.
