What colours did the EL XR8 come in?

Hi guys, I was just wondering what colours the EL XR8's came in as I am thinking of getting one soon. Any pics of the colours would be great too.

My dad had a heritage green EL Wagon it was a pretty horn colour but it showed the cratches a little too much.

My colour EL is i think you would call burgandy or maybe maroon. Very nice colour though.

Ive seen on the road White, Burgandy/maroon, Navy Blue thats all ican think of

The late EL Falcon range was availble in Oxford Green, a light Metallic Green that replaced Herritage Green. It was a very average looking colour. Herritage Green was much nicer.

Hmmm cobalt blue is pretty tempting. But I would love to respray it in Blueprint, IMO the best colour Ford has ever released.

i agree that metallic green of the EL was a shocker and looks dated already!

my brother has an ef in herritage green - a much better option

the pic of the bunch is that gun metal grey colour....
