"Other" SW colors

After seeing JimC's nice conversion of his AA Yellow ST to a SW, I was wondering if anyone had any pictures of any other SW's with atypical SW colors (but still LR colors like Beluga black, British Racing Green, Portofino Red, etc?)

I saw that but the below chart (from their page) shows NA for 97 Monza Red SWs and I'm pretty sure that's incorrect so I though all the data might be suspect.

I should know better than to argue with Ron but here's a photo of a red SW and a red ST side-by-side from cars.com (the SW is only $69,995!) I truly am color blind (or whatever the current PC term is) but they look different to me. The SW definitely looks more orangey and brighter.

I remembered seeing that truck on EBay... Supposedly, it was the last defender imported into the US. It was brought in last year, but used to be owned by LR corp., or something like that and someone brought it over here and wants to sell it for a small mint. That's why it has the boost wheels too.

I thought the last one imported was the 1997 SW LE #300/300? Sounds like a similar story. Last one imported and a dealer had it on their lot for awhile. Copley had it and Landroversforsale.com had it as well. Who knows where it is now.

My '97 truck is a Monza Red ST - afew years back I aquired the components and painted a hardtop Monza red to match the truck. (pictured up on the way up to the bristolcone pines in the White Mountains of Ca.)

I should have given credit to Len for being the pioneer on the ST to SW conversion. If I didnt have his truck to look at for details and ideas during the process I would have been pretty screwed.
