I can't recall it as such, but then I'm OLD. I can't remember much about '72...

'cept it was dark half th' time. :smirk:

It is hard to tell from your picture.

Almost looks Aqua...a 1972 only colour. Is it blue/green/seafoam colour?

But...it also looks silver...which was NOT an MGB colour.

I agree with Rick. As far as I know, 72 was the only year for Aqua, but that's not aqua. I have no idea what color it is. Real nice color, even if it isn't original.
Datsun in 76 had a color similar called "Smoky Blue Poly". The Colt Cricket had a similar color also called " Silver Metallic".
