Quarry Beige?

Hi,

I am brand new to the form, but an old car guy. I am looking to complete my small collection of Porsches with an Alfa. Mainly focusing on a GTV through 74 ish. Something either original in very good condition, or an older or new restoration. I was looking at a car on-line thats in "Belgium Quarry". Wondering what the view here is on that color in person? Thanks very much.

Hi Simon fancy meeting you here, welcome!

I know the seller and believe the color is Cava Beige which is a great color in my opinion one of my favorites.

Later
Joe

Welcome to the forum. Color preference is a pretty individual thing. If you like it, go with it. Quarry Beige aka Beige Cava / Beige Sable / Sandbeige /Desert Beige
Paint Code(s): AR-821

IMHO, Cava is up there with BMW Sahara Tan of the same period when the bright 60's colors were transitioning to the earth tone 70's.. I think there are better color choices that are more coveted (i.e, hold higher value) than (yawn) beige/tan.

Sounds a bit like the Sepia brown color for the Porsche

That's a tough color (too).

Follow the usual words of advice.. buy the best quality car your budget can afford and avoid color changes especially to non-period or non-105/115 series colors. Case in point, there's currently a 1750 GTV for sale on BaT in Cava.. while I might be OK with a high-quality 2000 GTV in Cava, it looks all wrong to me on the earlier 1750. Likewise, seeing a 2000 GTV in Ochre.. if you're into originality, be sure to get educated on which colors were offered for which model/vintage.

Thanks! All the Cavas Ive seen have been the 72-74 2000s. Ditto for Piper. Always learning something on this site.
