That is exactly what it says in my 2006 version of the guidelines!
 I do not mind the plug for the Guidelines, but it does not answer my question. I am not planning on doing a "concours" restoration, but I do like to understand the specific details so that I am armed with the facts when I make a decision.    

So, is Morris green the same dark green that I have seen on 100S engines? 
Is there a know source for the 100S engine color?

Gary, from the 2017 Guidelines:

  •  Some very early BN1's were a medium/dark bluish-gray     
     (chassis 138039 (believed to be the 7th or 8th production car built)     showed evidence of the engine being a med. to dark grayish-blue)
     •  One or two of the very early engines may havebeen Morris green. " 

A lot of information has changed in the Big Healey Guidelines since 2006.  Time to update your Guidelines!  😀

OK, a shameless plug, the 2018 Guidelines will be out beginning of January.  Contact Mike Osipik at:  mikeosipik at gmail.com
