For years I thought my MGB GT was Harvest Gold that had been subjected to
nuclear experiments resulting in a horrible, hideous color mutation. When =
got a Heritage certificate on the car three years ago, I was surprised to =
out it is actually =97 Limeflower. Yes, one of the really "special" BLVC h=
Used in 1973 only. Rare=97and for a reason. David Knowle's V8 book shows t=
were only 2 V8s produced in this color. The MGCC MGB Register listed only =
cars out of the 11000+ they have info on in Limeflower. Anybody else out t=
have a '73 GT North American spec in this flavor. Or have even seen one? o=
r is
mine likely to have been still on the lot by itself with the last of the M=
for sale in '80, 5 years after they stopped selling GTs here? Of course af=
I finish the sills, floors and other needed bodywork, I will repaint in it=
original color due to its rarity rather than the mineral blue I originally
planned on.
