Question Original leather colours

I have a 401 with distinctly non-original interior leather that has a light tan colour. I am thinking of having it re-trimmed in a more original format. I have some references of some original interiors but I was wondering if there is a list of common interior leather colours available?

Daniel ,
All 401's were trimmed in a Connolly Vaumol Luxan Fawn/Beige .
I suggest you contact Connolly who should have a record of the leather number and should be able to remake some for you.

The only exceptions to this , that I know of , were a few Motor Show 401's that would have been especially prepared and had other coloured leather.

The 403 had a selection of leather colours Fawn , Red , Blue , Grey, Brown and possibly other colours

Thank you Geoff, that is very helpful. Strangely, the factory have no record of my original colour although they do generally for other cars.

Could anyone post some pictures of the finishing (and maybe backing) of the original carpets so I can see if these were replaced also?
