Orchid Green Alpine

Postby Dero » Sun Nov 01, 2015 8:07 pm

I am looking for anyone who might own a orchid green Alpine. I have 67 Alpine Orchid Green and was wondering how many may be out there? :)

That is a very rare color! I can remember seeing one about ten years ago at a show in Ohio-maybe someone there knows the owner?

yes mine is a 1967 and was one of the later ones produced. I have owned it for over 30 years but haven't seem any others. just wondering if there are any out there or how many were produced.

My Series 5, number 14649, was originally Orchid Green. It was repainted Midnight Blue over 20 years ago. If I ever repaint it I may return it to the original color due to the rarity.

Nice Paul. I restored mine a few years back and we went back to the Orchid Green, Didn't like it at first but I'm glad we did. It really looks nice. I have since found a couple out there. many have been painted a different color. I get a lot of complements.
