I’ve never seen an ice blue sprint before;

The colour is not my cup of tea but looks like a good car?

Oh dear, that is today's number one covet; it's just a shame I sold the immaculate set of shadow blue seats I had a while back!

I had a 1977 sprint back when it was only 3 years old, French blue with a black interior. My 18 month old daughter threw up on the back seats first time out. Never got rid of the stain but loved the pale blue colour which is close to Iris blue. Sigh! yet another car I should have kept.

Lad I knew called Tim Smith had an ice blue Sprint about 30 years ago. At the time I remember him saying it was one of two remaining genuine ice blues that were left - his car has long since perished so if he was right that is indeed the rocking horse poo coating on the hens teeth...
