At the Vermont Conclave last June, Bic Healey stated that the Golden Beige
Metallic was "borrowed" from Jaguar's gold metallic and was introduced on
the Healey by BMC to boost sales.
Isn't ugly is in the eye of the beholder?

For those who have seen Golden Beige Metallic in the metal, is it ugly?
The reason for my question is that I'm restoring my '67 BJ8 which originally
came from the factory in GBM, but the prior owner saw fit to paint the car
silver with black coves, so all I have to go by are the scattered remnants
of gold hidden in various parts of the car and it's very difficult to get an
idea of the color as a whole. I have seen pictures online, but I'm not sure
if those pictures are an accurate representation of the color in real life.
I was going to use the Lexus gold, but the wife doesn't like it. Then I was
settled on Jaguar "Winter Gold" but I've decided that there is too much
green in that particular color. According to a couple of Healey folks I've
spoken with, true GBM is dull and quite ugly. Is this really the case?
