Color Code

I have a 1977 450 SL that I'll like to repaint! However, I haven't been able to find out what's the color code! As you can image, I'll like to keep the car with the original color. Therefore, I looking for a site which list all the colors offered for that year and model. If someone can tell me the color code by looking at a picture of the car, forward me your email address and I'll email a picture.

Do you not have a data plate by the radiator? If not give the VIN to a dealer and they will help you.

Check your data card for the car, the paint code(s) are in box 7 and are listed on the radiator support data plate. Also, this site has some good basic information and color chips:

Your monitor quality may affect the color rendition for the color chips, but you can get the idea.

Try this link. Look under the "Lackierung" link There are also upholstery colors on the site. This is a great resource. By the way the Dattel interior color is our Palomino. Dattel means date - like the fruit, but they call it Palomino in the US.
