One long term goal is to give my Isabella a new paint job. Unfortunately there are the odd spots that need attention – including some form of paint issue specific to the bonnet that necessitates a respray at some stage.
I plan to search the net to find photo’s of the complete set of colour options (if possible) – starting with the Borgward Isabella TS (my model). Depending how progress goes I may complete the year (and perhaps others as well) so others researching paint options have a chance to see the combinations live in 2D!
A bit of research has highlighted the following colour combinations for 1960:
Single colour: Domino black, Graphite grey, Silver grey metalic, Ivory, Cliff grey, Jade green, Aero blue, Shannon green, Iceland blue, Flamingo red (my car’s original colour), Coral red, Derby maroon.
Std, TS, combi, deluxe:
Silvergrey roof with; Graphite grey, Domino black
Ivory roof with: Domino black, graphite grey, Aero blue, Jade green, Coral red, Iceland blue, Flamingo red
Coupe colours to follow in a later post.
