Stone. Slate. Pewter. Whatever you call it, we’ve been loving variations of this non-metallic color for awhile now. Here are a few we’ve come across.

sure. fine, so they’re a bit of a guilty pleasure, but a jcw clubman? as a grocery getter? we would.
(at least a preowned example- they cost way too much new.)

nice, I think they would look very good with a red pinstripe running down the length of the cars.

great selections as usual. thanks!
do you have a link to the flickr page for the pic of the 356 cabriolet by the lake? i tried getting to the page with the file’s index number, but it said the page was private. much appreciated.

I saw (apparently) a 356 cabriolet soft-top the other day while I was driving home. It wasn’t this wonderful grey, but it still looked really sharp – thanks for the post and helping me finally figure out what that car was! :)

Just got a gray car! Arabian gray with red interior. Can someone explain why almost every example of gray cars from the 60s has a red interior? Quite a number in the examples above do as well…sorry for reviving a year old post.
