Ah yes much debated here as my girlfriend thinks it’s teal but when I got the paint for the door repairs it’s turquoise ,
Rego papers have it as green but the interior is definitely blue
Yes the publican rang a mechanic who was out hunting so some refreshments and a chat to the locals before he arrived , hi dad had been the Holden dealer in Murrayville years ago
Anyway she had been not driven for a number of years and the radiator was pretty blocked but after that we got back to the Illawarra with dramas at a stately 80
This is my first outing on this site so thrilled to hand over some info .
Thanks for replying .
Undergoing rust removal at the moment .
Tom

Hope you enjoy..I know it's hard to tell from photos but they don't seem to show much in the way of rust? Hopefully you can match the paint..I've been playing around with one door on my Statesman and it's been a nightmare to try and get it looking the same in terms of colour and clear coat (varies depending on angle and lighting conditions..looks perfect one way then stands out like dog balls from another angle..very frustrating...like the whole side of the car requires blending...
