Colours of the top-roll



The customer had to specify the colour of the top-roll separately. Mostly he ordered a matching colour to the interior, or the colour black. Sometimes (but seldom) the top-roll got a distinctive colour.
When the colour of the top-roll was equal to the interior colour, it had the same colour code.
In 1971 the following colours were offered for the top-roll:

Colour (alphabetically)

Colour code

Black

VM 8500

Blue

VM 3209

Green

VM 3124

Red

VM 3086


Because of the risk for reflection in the front window, Rolls-Royce recommended not to use the next colours for the top-roll:

Colour (alphabetically)

Colour code

Grey

VM 3393

Light blue

VM 3244

Scarlet

VM 3171

Tan

VM 846


For the former colours the customer got a negative advice. For the next colours Rolls-Royce even discouraged the customer to buy them. Refelction in the front screen could be dangerous. Yet Rolls-Royce was able to produce these colours on the customer's demand:

Colour (alphabetically)

Colour code

Beige

VM 3234

Off-white

VM 3323
