It should be right on the flat metal section in front of the radiator. It's usually a 3-digit code with a bunch of other numbers. And if you can't find it there, usually you can just get the right color from the paint manufacturer. I imagine there was only 1 white for that year and model.

Open Hood

Look Down at the Hood Latching Device sticking up from the crossmember just
in front of the Radiator...Next to it is a Stamped Plate with "Reverse Braille"
on the upper right hand corner.
On the lower Left hand corner of that plate are 5 numerals and a letter...
in the format "11 040 F"... The middle three digits are your exterior color code.
(In my case the color is "Schwarz" (Black) and the middle three digits are 040)
