I'm after a few bits, depending whether it's a saloon, estate, manual, auto, colour etc?

There aren't many V6 760s left now so certain V6 specific parts are probably going to be useful to V6 owners, with any parts though are you willing to post, is there a limit on the size of part you'll post - probably loads more questions!

You're right Luke, i think there's less than 400 left now, can't remember if that's V6s and redblocks or just V6s but either way, they're a rare animal!

One of the bits i'm after is a tailgate in Silver Green - a 760 only colour i believe and i can trip over unicorn droppings any day i like and hens teeth keep finding their way into my boots but a good 760 tailgate in Silver Green? Not a snowball in hells chance!

If that's the colour that looks like silver with a slight greenish tint,
I had a 740 2.0 that colour and was chatting to a bloke at the car boot fair last year with the same.

Would that have been a facelift 740? I think they made the colour available across the range when the 40 was facelifted a couple of years after the 760. That said my last 740 was a 1988 (so pre-facelift) and that was Dark Blue Metallic, again a 760 only colour i think when it was first released but spread to the 740 quickly.

I could be very wrong, i'm going on what i found on some colour charts ages ago and something someone said to me that i may have misconstrued.

This is Silver-Green :



I know there was a similar colour before that but slightly more green, whether that was also Silver Green or not i don't know but presumably a different colour code.

One of the things i'm after is the idler pulleys for the air con, couple of bolts holds each one to the front of the engine. They'd need to be good though or i may as well find the bearings for the ones i've got.
