The same range continued
into AS4 and A2S4 production, but most of the A2S4 produced
in 1953 were in black.
In late 1953 and early 1954, several A2S4 (A30 two- door saloons)
were produced with contrasting roofs. For example: Coronet
Cream with Red or Sandringham Fawn roof; Balmoral Blue
with Windsor Grey roof; Chelsea Grey with Medium Blue
roof; Sandringham Fawn with Coronet Cream roof; Medium
Blue with Chelsea Grey roof; Windsor Grey with Balmoral
Blue roof. (Australian Monthly Motor Manual of March
1953 quotes A30 colours available there as: Fern Green,
Pastel Green, Light Grey, Pastel Blue, Beige and Black.)
The Coronation colours continued until late October 1954, when
the following appeared:
Tweed Grey/Red, Spruce Green/Beige, Chestnut/Beige,
Mid-Blue/Beige, Black/Red or Beige trim. The odd car
or two were produced in Chelsea Grey/Red.
Same range continues, except Chestnut disappears and
Mid-Blue becomes Reef Blue. Chelsea Grey came into
full use at the end of June. At the end of October,
a completely new range of colours appeared: Tintern Green/Green,
Cardigan Grey/Red, Conway Blue/Beige, Black/Red or Beige trims.
The above continued in use, except that at the beginning
of the year, Cardigan Grey was replaced by Tweed
In February, Streamline Blue was introduced
and Chelsea Grey/Red and Spruce Green reappeared.
The latter now had green trim in place of beige. These
seven colours continued in use to the end of A30 production,
but further trim options appeared, giving 14 different
colour and trim combinations. They were: Black/Green,
Red or Beige trim; Tweed Grey/Red trim; Chelsea Grey/Red
or Green trim; Tintern Green/Green or Beige trim; Spruce
Green/Green or Beige trim; Conway Blue/Blue or Beige
trim; Streamline Blue/Blue or Beige trim.
number of A30s were trimmed in hide to special order,
although it was only a very small proportion of total
production. The normal trim was in leathercloth.
