No, its not metellic Stylist.

Thats some damm good sales figures for FPV.

I've been told that the initial rush for BA's in general is starting to slide slightly though and the factory is slowly starting to catch up.

I suspect that Blood Orange must be a very difficult colour to apply. Can your very very close to the top contact confirm that it is a colour that will stay in the line up and if not what will replace it and when?

Blood Orange will stay for now but there is at least one more colour under threat of extinction as the range is slowly revised. Looking at the colour chip for "Luscious" - the new red - it is a cross between Sparkling Burgundy and the colour it replaces (Barossa). Not too bad at all.

Russell,

Do you have any info on the possible new daffodil like colour mentioned by Boss GT? l would love a GT in that colour which l imagine as being like that used by Holden on the Monaro.

We are looking at a July build/August delivery so we may be in luck if this colour does become available. What is the other colour that may get the chop?

Cheers

Prestige paint applies to any of the non solid colours in the current range (which is most of them), Don't know why they even bother.

On the few occasions I've had my head under an FPV bonnet I have been looking at other things - will make a point of checking. I know the XR8's don't and it wasn't done with T3 either although the earlier T-Series did.

Cheers

he did not tell me what colours will be replaced but i would imagine that it would be the low selling ones.i was told about the barossa possibly going so that would be likely to happen.

In the case of Barossa - it has happened.
It's replacement comes on stream from July.

I cannot visualise Sparkling Burgundy. It isn't a current colour is it? On which models did it appear p/s.

Did you have to post a link of your car? How's the sale going? I know it's off topic, but it's a bloody good colour and a very nice car!

Thanks Russ

I recall it now. Just likw the burgundy of my old XW Fairmont with the white/bone interior. (God I loved that car). The new colour sounds OK. Its now great to see Ford being more adventurous in its colour range and taking a few risks. I haven't understood why car colours from almost all manufacturers in the last 10 -15 years have been so simular, predicatable and boring.

PS: Don't you guys in the East sleep. Its 10.30 is the West now. 12.30 your time. A Milo and off to bed to you - Work tomorrow!!!

It's been replaced by a colour called Luscious. It's in the latest version of the Falcon brochure. Can't really tell the difference to be honest though.

Then you need to put the two colour chips together - Barossa is a much brighter red and has less metal flake than Luscious which in turn is browner than sparkling burgundy!

Still on the market - but then at the rate GT-p's are appearing (slowly) that doesn't matter much.
