Question Color check: need assistance

Can anyone ID this color, and even the paint code for me?

Thanks!

My two guesses were Balmoral Green or Arizona Tan, but both of those that I found photos for on teh Googles were very different colors from this. I have never seen anything like this before, and I love it. It's almost the same color as the background of these forums!

Hmmm... I don't think it could fade to that (and still have a new paint shine) from this color:





Neat chart, though. Arran Beige, maybe?

What year is it? That will narrow down what colors it was available in. I punched in 89 as a guess based on the wheels, but my eye for County's and the differences between years is far from trained...

This is a challenge for sure. I believe it's pre-1987 per the lights (assuming they were not changed) and that it's either Sahara Dust like Justin said, or Shetland Beige.

I believe as shown it is a 1985 (possibly a 1984), but looking through the colors available for those years, I couldn't match it to anything listed as factory non-metallic in the Land Rover brochures. It seems to fall between the Arizona Tan and the Balmoral Green, with some hint to Arran Beige, but when I search for those colors, I come up with a LOT of different things—and none of them look like this color.
