Clausager doesn't seem to consider it anal to discuss colour, although he
stops short of paint codes for them.
He says that "The original red-painted King Dick jack (AHH 6538) was rep[laced
in May 1973 by a stronger alternative (BHH 1264) from the same maker. A new
black Metallifacture jack (BHH 5329), introduced in February 1974 and common to
four-cylinder and V8 models ...). However on the previous page he says that
V8s "... initially (had) a different jack (BHH 5178) which was blue and made by
Metallifacture, although this was supplied with some four-cylinder cars as
well". The book has pictures of all three jacks but unfortunately car colours
are not in the same shots.
