You want to know the colour of the car or the bushes? The car is green, The bushes I wouldn't know.
I've got the EL GT writeup that outlines pretty much goes through every aspect of the car.
In regards to the bush's heres what you have:
Front: Inner Pivot bush: Unique 80 durometer urethane
Upper arm pivot bush: Unique 75 durometer urethane
Rear: Upper arm bush: Unique 75 durometer urethane
Lower Arm bush: Unique 80 durometer urethane
Brand wise they are Kelray urethane. Quote "On production GTs, however urethane is kept red, except yellow for the control arm."
BTW i love EL GT's, sounds like you have a very sweet example in immaculate condition. BTW is yours a manual or auto?
