After info/pics of vehicles with the 2 tone brown wartime camo, anyone able to help?
Suppose to be restoring a Hillman Minx but need to sort out the boring bits before I get me hands dirty!

In the past I have owned 2 Hillman Mix cars and have 2 wings and a boot lid spare if you need them-not brilliant but not rotten.

You are presumably talking about Standard Camouflage Colour's No.2 and 1A.

Try the articles written on this site for more information.
