I am not a high-level expert on Ferrari models, but I know some details about the GTO62.
I think there are two different colors of the body, according to the owner of the car.
David Piper's car was painted in medium green, in particular, BP Green (British Petroleum green). The color of the rims was standard, bluish metallic light gray.
When the car was bought by Sutcliffe, it was painted in a dark green British Racing Green. For the rims , in some cases, the color was the same as the body (British Racing Green), and in other occasions, they were painted red , type Rosso Corsa (Fiat Red 120).
The dashboard was standard, crackeled matt black.
The interior of the doors , were the same color as the body, with the flat panels painted in light metallic gray .
The complete interior was painted in light metallic gold .
Finally, the structure of the seats was of natural aluminum color, covered with blue cloth (Italian Blue).
I can be wrong in some detail, so if there is something to correct, I appreciate the comments on it.
