High milage KV6. Claims it has uprated head gasket on an R reg. Has the head been off perhaps already?

Nice interior though, not sure about the wheels on a Sterling model

Could always paint the calipers Green...

I got exactly the same car but mine is a slightly darker green, looks black from a bit of a distance.

Anyone know what colour that is called ?

The seller states that it "has had" the uprated gasket fitted etc... Therefore, he is saying that it has been done not, necessarily, that it was fitted with this from the factory.

This is most definitely British Racing green. As is yours, I would guess. However, due to the vagaries of the photo/computer process, the colour may be a touch different to what you'd expect of BRG.

Also, and this is something never mentioned on here or in cars for sale adverts, is whether the BRG is Metallic or Pearlescent. Rover supplied 800s after 1996 with a choice of these two finishes. The shades are subtely different, as you would have hoped if buying a new car and making such a deliberate choice. Interestingly, either finish (metallic OR pearlescent) was an identical extra £395. Most car manufacturers loaded the cost of the pearl finish to make it more expensive than metallic - usually by quite a margin.

Your car is painted Woodcote - a green pearlescent paint that was introduced in early 1996. And deleted from the colour chart about a year later. Possibly due to low demand.
