Not the best quality, but the MkII used in The Protectors was painted Berkeley Brown.

Absolutely. I’d much rather see an Interceptor in Berkeley Brown than blue, there are far too many blue ones about.

There are too many Blue Interceptors. I can remember the first time I went to a club meeting and out of 30 odd cars 22 of them were a shade of blue.

Nothing whatsoever, Interceptors suit it. I just think it’s nice seeing Interceptors painted in a colour that isn’t a shade of blue, tangerine, brown, mustard, yellow, green, grey, etc.

For example, how good does this look in Moorland Peat?
