While checking out the shipping lists I have run across this finish description a number of times 'MG AMBER' OK I heard of Amber Fireglo or 'AFG', but Mapleglo Amber is a new one on me.

I assume it is a factory aged mapleglo finish, like on my 9 year old MG 350V63 nicely yellowed over the years?

Cheers, Kez

A few AMG's were built, but we decided not to make that available as a color because it didn't look different enough, especially on 330's, 4004's, and 650 Colorados...

Given we made only 5 or 6 instruments with this color as a test, "a number of times" might be a bit strongly stated.

Anyway, it wasn't anything special looking and just not worth the effort to bring it into production.

Mr Hall, maybe I'm just lucky but I spotted 4 MG AMBER specimens within a minute of checking out the shipping lists, one overseas outlet had 2 shipped to them at the same time, this seemed to be a much better ratio then say 660 BBR's of which I think I have seen only 2 or 3 ship so far.

MG AMBER might not be 'anything special looking' but they are sure to have some 'special' collector interest if only 5 or 6 specimens exist! Mmhh, see ya...

Cheers, Kez
