Arrow Rover Paint Codes?

Hi guys, is there such thing as a "rover charcoal grey"?

Is that too vague or is that a genuine description?

What cars would this paint be found on and does anyone have a code handy?

Thanks

Charcoal - LVD, sometimes confused with Anthracite

pretty much all of the smaller Rovers have been charcoal at some point

You wouldn't happen to have the paint code stored in the old egg while you're at it would you?

EDIT: Strike that, just saw you edit it.

Why does the car have no vin plate ???
Look at the rubber seal along the scuttle panel trim, in the "gutter" on the left hand side check the stamping of the vin number into the body and cross reference it to the V5C

The 75 & ZT club web site has a datasheet of all colours used since 1965 if that's any help.
