    HELP!! Pics of OLD GOLD

    Hey Guys,

    i am building up an MK 1 Escort and would like to paint it like the old gold from Roger Clark he drove in the Dunkeries Rally 1972 with starting number 1. He won the rally. The registration number was LVX-941 J. I need pics to make it as close to the original as possible. Maybe some of you still have pics from the old days or you know someone who has them. I am seeking now almost for 3 years and i still got monly one pic in colour and one in black and white.
    Please help.

    Regards Thomas

    Re: HELP!! Pics of OLD GOLD

    Hi Guys,

    I'm new at this forum and would like to know if anyone has some more information and period pics of Old Gold, LVX941J.
    I would like to make a replica of this Old Gold and use it for rallying. I'm building a 1971, LHD RS1600 which was registered at 01-02-1971 as the LVX941J.
    Any help would do. Would like to have pics from the interior as well to keep it as close to the original car as I can. Maybe somebody might know the current owner of Old Gold?

    Cheers,
    Olaf

    Maybe anyone knows the color-code of the golden paint on the original car?
