Connolly leather

Post by daffy » Thu Mar 31, 2016 9:43 am

My car has original VM3015 interior.
In Kerrys registry has many 330 this color, but it is referred to as "light blue"
I've gone through his entire registry and all images featured as 3015 looks bright/light blue.
However, when you look at Connolly samples the color is definitely not light blue.
I have Connolly samples from three different leather companies, and the are all blue/dark blue.
I shall now renovate my car in its original color and is confused.
Good advice would be appreciated.

Connolly's current 3015 is NOT the same color as the original 3015. The current 3015 is a darker blue than the original. I had a car with the original leather and have just seen new samples of the current offering.

Okay, someone in here with the knowledge of what color code should be used.
Connolly does not light blue at all.
Concorce judges, are you in here ?

Perhaps this vendor (no affiliation or prior business with) may be worth communicating with to obtain a sample of their A4135 leather to discern if it is a match to your interior: http://www.connollyleather.com.au/

This site has a chart of the Connolly color palate: http://www.330gt.com/Encyclopedia/Leathers.htm

Thank you, have been in contact with these.
The problem is that they do not know how 3015 looked in the old days

daffy, please review this eBay item: http://www.ebay.com/itm/Ferrari-Connoll ... 1666069363

It states your color is "Nuvola VM 3015" the english translation of Nuvola is "Cloud"; Norwegian is "Sky" - could it be a 'blue-grey'?

If so, then perhaps this vendor may be of assistance: http://worlduph.com/samples/connolly.htm#* with their color "Saville Grey 4161"

daffy - final thought would be to contact either of these vendors for their consultation: http://www.ukhide.co.uk/brands/connolly/
or
http://hvlclassleathers.com/

Again, no affiliation, nor any previous business transacted.

Thank you, have been in contact with these vendors and received samples.
But they are all too dark. On inquiry admits that samples may not match the original color from the 60's.

The samples on eBay are the same as on Kerry's side. Here one can clearly see that vm3015 not match when we look at cars from the 60s.

Really hope that the clouds in the US does not match the 3015 samples. Then you have serious problems over there.

These are pictures of s/n xxxx I took about 4 years ago, I believe the seats had been re-done but most of the interior was still original. It was a very warm inviting color. it's since had all that lovely original leather replaced with a different color.

I also thought the current colour was too dark until I compared new with old
