Paint Codes

The following colours were used by BMC Australia for locally made Morris 1100s, 1500s, Minis and Austin 1800s. Not every colour was used on every model and because of the nature of computer monitors the actual colours on this page should only be used as a guide. The numbers in brackets are the Dulux shade numbers - often referred to as colour codes.

Up to 1969 no colour codes were specified on the vehicle identification plate, just the colour name with a single digit prefix denoting paint type and a suffix corresponding to the paint manufacturer. These are shown in the table opposite.

From 1969 onwards, labels were stuck to the engine bay bulkhead with the colour name and a Berger Paints colour code which is completely different to the Dulux code, comprising two letters followed by four digits.

Two metallic colours were used, one (Comet Grey) for the metal fascia or dashboard of the Morris 1100 and the other (Silver Birch) for the wheel rims.
