How rare?

Exactly how rare are Midnight Blue (maddison blue pearl? I think thats the OEM Color) and Tan interior COUPES. I had one in my family brand new, stolen, never could find an example like that one afterwards.

Well, I really never seen pearl blue. I have seen only ONE, in my area, but I suppose most pearl colors are rare. My car is originally owned, never stolen and well kept too. I have an SE and its Geneva green pearl. That's the factory color and I have only seen one person with the factory geneva green on their SE. Other people have painted that color on their car.


And I believe tommi has the same paint that you are talking about. Some pics would be great!

Is pearls rare?

I have a blue - pearl paint on Accord (CB4 real japanese domestic market vehicle)
(black in shade and midnight blue in light)

I have a red - pearl paint on Prelude (BA5 Prelude)
(dark red in shade and wine pinky red in light)

I love both the colours

My 1991 Accord brochure shows the only available blue as Cobalt Blue Pearl, but there was also the light Laurel Blue which was a 1990 colour.

This is Laurel Blue on a 1990 DX


This is a 1991 EX-R in dark blue. Unsure of the actual name, but I don't think this is Cobalt Blue, however it is a '91.


My 1992 Accord brochure does not have a colour chart in it, but this is a 92 EX-R in dark blue. This blue is different than the one above I think. It's a little bit darker in person.


I owned the 90 and 91 and this 92 is in my local JY.

Yea it was this shade of blue, might have been a bit darker. Sorry that I don't have any pix. Never though it would've been important to take any.

Anyways I've never seen anymore coupe with that shade of blue and tan interior.

I thought you said you were looking for a blue color? Nighthawk black pearl is black, not blue. I don't even believe they made CB coupes in that color anyhow.

The only weird blue CB coupe with tan or ivory interior that comes to mind is the 1993 SE, I believe it was brittany blue or atlantis blue. Like the one C91BLX7 just posted.

Really? The 91 LX we had was midnight blue and it was a pearl coat color. It had the sparkles in the paint and everything. It was not repainted either. It was factory, hell when my uncle gave it to us it only had 20k on the clock.

The paint it was what JDMDriver explained in his first post.

I guess the CB we had was pretty rare than as how there isn't alot of info on it's paint and what not
