Land Rover Series 1 Dove Grey. This colour has been used since the early years of Land Rover production from around 1954 until 1956. It is the grey that has a ‘pinky’ look to it. Used on the Series 1 Landrovers only, Dove Grey coach paint was mainly to be seen on export vehicles and the Station Wagon variations of the model. The correct colour code for Series 1 Dove Grey was lost for many years and Perfectly matched against original panels hidden from the light of day for many years. Authenticity confirmed through a professional restorer who rebuilds nothing but leaf sprung Land Rovers and has done since the early 1970’s. The Dove Grey shade is notably in many early sales brochures produced by Land Rover.
