Or as they say about the opposite sex, beauty is in the eyes of the 
beerholder

All 

 Beauty is in the eyes of the 
beholder, and Sunbeam does not own it any
longer.

always a bit more garish than the true colour of the subject being 
filmed. you therefore have the dilemma of which shade to choose, if you 
plump for the original factory colour it will inevitably be a more 
toned down finish. if you want what is portrayed in the movie you would 
be best to consult your paint supplier who will be able to mix you 
something to your, and your wife's taste. i had a similar situation 
when i painted my '53 mk1 alpine. i fancied doing it in b.r. green. but 
my wife overruled insisting on a more 'glamourous

up doing it in a pearlescent old english white, not original but if 
she's happy- i'm happy and i always say ' if pearly white had been 
available in 1953, they would have used it'. a coat of paint isn't the 
end of the world and if needed it can always be re done some other 
colour at a later date.

Joop Stolze is restoring a 1953 Sunbeam Alpine for my wife and me. We 
need to determine the exact paint color and interior leather color. I 
hope you can help.

were the true factory colors, I'm sure my wife wants it to look like it 
does in parts of the film where it is a shinier blue (Sapphire seems to 
be a bit darker/greyer).
