Bluecol Label

    So.... I came across a photo of a factory Rootes Bluecol instructions label in my storeroom of odd things, and whilst mindlessly sitting in front of the TV I decided to tinker around in Photoshop to clean it up to see how it looked. It was fairly damaged, but I think it came out reasonably well. (Yes, I know the type is not perfectly straight... it was like that, believe it or not!)

    I post it here in case anyone would like a copy for their own Rootes car. Download, re-size and print as needed.

    My only request is that no one is to print and sell these, please (as has happened before with other labels I’ve restored - sigh).

    In all my years I've never run across this, where was it attached to the car??

    I’m not sure. I suspect a hole was punched in it and it was attached to the rad cap, but it could have simply been slipped into the owner’s packet. The original copy I have is fairly degraded so it’s hard to tell.

    Bob, I have seen one of those tags in Wally’s stuff I think it was on his autocross car at one time.
