Is there a site or place I can go to see what colors were available in 1990? I have searched many times over and have come up with nothing!

shadeone,

are those the colors offered over the lifetime of the esprit? I've never seen a Stevens Esprit in Pearl White (besides the special edition 88), lotus yellow, claret red, or any blue.

Its possible that some of the colors were only used on overseas or other countries models or that they were just listed on my brochure because its a color they had previously used before. this brochure wasnt literally specific to 1990, it just had a 90 SE on it and the majority of those colors were represented on SE cars I knew of... this is the full page: http://shadeone.com/lit/brochures/IMG_0294.jpg

... The only Clared Red one I have seen is a 1992 highwing which was never imported into the US...

Mine is Lotus Yellow, more popularly known as Proper Yellow. :)

The pearl white is actually quite common, they came with blue interiors, though the leather was darker and more uniform than the Anniversary editions.

Funny to see this pic. This yellow Esprit was my Dad's car that he private sold and then it popped up at Momentum in Houston a year later.

We use to go to car shows together in Houston showing his yellow with my green/yellow Jim Clark Esprit. Good times...

Travis,

That set of graphics is something else!

:bow:

And you are correct on the shop manual. My car is currently being painted and I have one of the two-tone Turbos, calypso red with A60 "Seal Grey".....

Ok The trim code on the car I'm buying is ICBI which I believe is the Magnolia but it is not near as light colored as other cars I have seen that say they have Magnolia how much variation might there be from year to year?
