[Healeys] Heritage certificate gives different body colour

I also found what I believe is a mistake on my Heritage Certificate 
regarding the original color of my 1955 BN1. The original color was stated 
as black, but in doing a complete tear-down, there is no evidence of black 
body color. Red was evidently the original color. Makes me wonder about the 
authenticity of the Certificate.
