Seen on AROnline...
"The recent report on the Stanford Hall Mini show resulted in a debate on what constitutes British Leyland beige. The owners of one particular MkIII Mini insisted it was Harvest Gold. Well, that is probably what BLMC officially called it.
BLMC beige, or Harvest Gold or Sandglow, is symbolic of 1970s British Leyland cars, part of a new range of colours to replace the multiplicity of shades offered by BMC. As the Mini, ADO16 and ADO17 Landcrab all matured into the Leyland-ised MK3 versions, with cost taken out, the new range of colours was introduced and even non-BMC cars received the new range of colours.
So here, in tribute to BLMC’s most infamous colour scheme.......a gallery of beige/Harvest Gold/Sandglow cars:-
