I sold Fords in the late 70s / early 80s when a very similar colour, Roman Bronze, was quite popular - often in tandem with a Tan vinyl roof - and just about every manufacturer had their own equivalent.

Roman Bronze, those were the days!
My first proper job (in the late seventies) was working in a motor factors as a Refinishing Representative, so colour matching and on-site tinting was part and parcel of the job. Roman Bronze was a PIG, with literally hundreds of variants; looked great on Capris and Grenadas.

Now I know why I wasn’t considering Miami Blue at the moment with this in my driveway ….. :twisted:

I had a bronze Capri in the 70s, and it was badly damaged when I got tailended on the North Circular Road (I was stationary at traffic lights). The repairers had several goes at repainting it, before I was happy with the result!

Very off topic but it looks like Porsche have raided the 1978 colour chart for inspiration - Night Blue, Gentian Blue, Python Green, Papaya, Carmine Red and Miami Blue are all there as well as already pointed out by Old Chimer - Mahogany (Roman Bronze) :D !

Anyone fancy a contrasting vinyl roof in Black or Tobacco ? Thought not.

I had my '65 Buick Riviera resprayed in Hawaiian Blue metallic. Obviously not a GM colour but I got the paint VERY cheap at the time ;-)

I actually don't mind Mahogany.... It's more interesting than Volcano, Night Blue or Black.

It is an interesting colour. But not at all popular in the UK. Did I read that it's popular in Asian markets?

I haven’t seen the stats but it’s always reported as being very popular in China

Nice but prefer others
