    Brown cars have grown on me over the years and I look forward to creating my own one this year.

    Personally I think they're a bit of an acquired taste ... I can think of a few colours I'd rather have, although last year I did bid on a brown one ... as everything else about the car was just as I wanted. In hindsight, luckily I was outbid!

    Brown interiors on the other hand ... well, tan (if that is allowed) ... :yum:

    I like.....and if I may be so bold, I've noticed that brown-painted cars have mostly had rust-'free' bodies for some reason....maybe their owners didn't take them out so much......:D

    Nah, brown cars just camouflage it better ;)

    Looks more Coppery or what some would say is gold even

    This is more what i would consider brown, lighting plays a huge part though and everyones screen is setup slightly different!

    Nissan called it (301) Brown metallic - that's enough for me.:thumbs:

    Yes listed as Metallic Brown.

    "The high-quality respray was done in the original shade of metallic brown (code 114)."

    Hmmm, 114 was a pre '73 colour so either they got it wrong (listing and paint code) which I doubt or the car is a late '72 originally listed as a '73 model as is the custom in the States.

    But as an owner, it would cause problems to seek parts under a 1973 reference.

    I do like those series 3 XJ6s. Even in brown it looks great!

    Not sure about toffee brown but I saw a new mini convertable in just the right shade of metallic brown for one of the zeds.

    Very nice, do you regret selling it?

    Looks magic in earthy tones, BMW and VAG have some nice revival metallic Browns these days too.

    It belonged to my neighbor, very nice car, rust free, quality paint job. I found my orange 71 just before this car and could not keep both at the time. The killer part was that it sold for less than $8000 US in 2013 to a guy in S.F. bay area. Can't look back.
