Anyone know the correct Red colour to use for a very early 1959 (15th oldest surviving Morris Mini) Fan/Pulley?

Sorry, no idea, but the fan stiffner on my 1960 was still painted that red. I am however not going to remove the rad to get a look at the red paint :)

Hi Martin

It's very close to Cherry Red (ironically with this car) but a little lighter. I think I used a ford colour last time I painted one. I may still have some paint left, I'll have a look for you.

I have a pair of red fan blades which i think are the correct shade, happy to bring them to Blyton if you want to take a look.

Any chance you could post up a photo on the forum?
