My 1954 Alpine Special was painted black at the factory as noted on the
production manifest. Black wheels. Must have been a special order. Frank

hi pete,

           thanks for the run down of original colour schemes of 'our' cars.
having seen so many '53 cars with red wheels i have until now associated it
as being the original arrangement. i suppose individual owners have chosen
red as a fashion statement. my own  53 mk1 alpine is white with red wheels
and upholstery (and black controls) it is surprising how much comment from
members of the public, much of it negative, the scheme attracts. but i have
no intention of changing.

 
cheers, 

 
martin.

Wheels should be body colour except for Ivory cars which were bright red.
Colour options offered were:- Coronation Red with Light Fawn upholstery.
Sapphire Blue with Light Fawn upholstery. Alpine Mist with Bright Red
upholstery. Ivory with Bright Red upholstery and black steering wheel and
controls. There were a few special ordered cars in different colours.  Pete

Do the wheels match the color the car is painted?

Thank you for any insight on this
