You are correct - Laurel Green is not listed technically as a 1972 color
for the TR6, but was a 1971 color.  Just as Triumph has done with
certain parts/other features of our cars, they sometimes used (or used
up) stock on hand. My car was built in the first month of '72
production, and probably received one of the last of the Laurel Green
paint applications before the "can ran dry".

By the way, in my opinion it's a great color!  Another fellow lister has
a '72 nearly identical to mine.  By commission numbers, we figure they
were painted out of the same can, so to speak. Only difference is mine
has Black trim, while his is New Tan.
