    It appears to have been painted green originally. You wonder how long it's been parked.

    Looks like Forrest green originally. Straight body at least. Should be rescued ...

    Wasn't forest green first used on series 4 cars? It's a series 2 so it was probably Seacrest green.

    The blue sticker on the rear plate might show 1981. Difficult to "connect the pixels" on enlargement. Also, I don't know about California's registration rules so it might not be relevant.

    According to the "tech data' section on the club site the colour code 86 (forest green) first appeared with the SIV but:

    "All cars with special order colors received that color code identification on the vehicle data inspection plate (no exceptions). This hold true based on registry findings and factory worker interviews. For example: We know that the Works Cam-tail race cars were painted code 86 Forest Green. These are Series II Alpines with color code 86 on the data tag."

    Wonder what other Rootes vehicles used the code 86 paint prior to it being a stock color beginning with series 4? A quick scan of cars on the registry of this site that have the paint code listed shows no cars thru series 3 with # 86 paint.
