Hi,

 

I've recently purchased my first classic mini, a 1991 cooper 1275 (one of the last carburetor models to be registered), and I can't for the life of me find the paint code of my car?

 

I've attached a picture so you can have a look.

 

Any help is greatly appreciated.

 

Many Thanks in advance.

Hi again,

 

I've searched both of these colours on google images and they don't look quite like whats on my car... Are you sure this is what it is?

 

I'm starting to get concerned it's been resprayed at some point in its life!!! haha

Yeah, I've had a look on the internet and at some pictures, and I'm pretty sure mine is quicksilver to be honest

 

thanks

MNF is the Rover 3-letter code for Quicksilver. You don't see many Mainstream Coopers left in that colour, yours looks good!
