Unfortunately the colour of Steed's car is unknown, but there obviously existed several different tones of the Alvis.
- British Racing Green combined with beige leather seats
- British Racing Green combined with trim colour red
- Dark Blue body colour with grey trim colour
Also two tone cars:
Two tone red over maroon (trim colour?)
Two tone cream over maroon (trim colour?)
I would exclude the version British Racing Green combined with trim colour red for Steed's car in Traitor in Zebra, because his car's leather seats look light (in black and white) compared to red seats on photos changed to black and white.
Another Alvis vehicle appeared in series 6 episode "Mission...Highly Improbable", the shrinked tank (with the mini Steed inside) is an Alvis Saracen 1952 FV 603.
