Re below

I have just had the body of my formerly black, red interior white 
piping, '66 B redone.  Excellent job.  Question of colour came up.  
Original colour label in trunk found as "Chelsea Grey"  Decided on 
this.  No original paint around here (Victoria British Columbia 
Canada) so I was told paint was matched to original colour in the 
trunk and inner doors using some computer technology. Looks 
fabulous!! - now interior colour is a question - but I'll go with the 
red as I get around to re-doing seats and interior and rugs.

This is my first post, after some years on and off lurking.

My 63 B is Olde English White, but not the MG factory color, it is a
Jaguar color, at least thats what the PO told me, My car was 
black, I do prefer the white over black, I have never been a fan of 
colors, except Dark BRG. In the 70s the MG color selection was much 
"wild?" than the colors of the 60s. It seems to me that the 60s cars
looked much better in the basics (BRG, red, black & white)  A 60s car
wouldnt look as good in Black Tulip for example. Go with what you 
like. If
I re painted mine I would consider Ford Colonial White, that's the 
they used on the 55-57 Thunderbirds, sort of an Antique White, not 
refrigerator white that is used today
