The colour is one of Citroen’s new retro colours . The shell was painted by sms in Spalding , hope it looks as good in the flesh as I haven’t seen it since it was in primer

A "retro" colour, that explains it, I thought it looked very late 50's or early 60's. Great colour.

Yes, I recall seeing a DS or three in that color. The day likely does not do the color justice, but it is nice. Very understated. Time for the fun part!

As best as I can determine, that fabulous colour is Citroen's 'Almond Green Pastel'

Anyone know if there's any way we can get the paint details so that I can have some mixed here in the USA?

I understand the main paint man Paul Mason left SMS so do you know who painted the car? Looks a nice job!
