Looks a bit more like M9 not Q9, I'll scan on my EL brochure in a second.

OsbornThomas, there are quite a few colours as EF had colours, EFII got some more EL got a couple more and the only differance between a EL and a EL II is two colours from the AUs (oxford green and cardnial red, G5 and T5 IIRC) , unless of course you got a XR8.

Computer Screen interpreting colour on list and cars different
