Not quite at this stage yet, but whenever I tell anyone I’m restoring a van their first question is always what colour will I paint it. Well originally Stan was painted blue and there were only four colours (Blue, Green, Red and Black) that the vans were painted, apart from GPO Green and Red. The BS381 colour code was 107 and called ‘Strong Blue’. So that’s the colour I’ll go for. I will be getting a spray can sample to see what it looks like in the flesh; just to make sure.
BS.381 107 Strong Blue
