82 380sl paint colors

Does anyone know of a site that lists and shows all the paint colors that were available for a Mercedes around 1982. I purchased a 1982 380sl and the P.O. repainted it years ago from original yellow to a chocolate gray color. I know it's a long shot, but I need some touch-up paint and I'm hoping that maybe it repainted it an original M.B. color, if I can see the colors, maybe I can get a code for the touchup paint. I've done searches on google, but I can't find a site that shows the colors. Any and all help would be greatly appreciated.

I hope their pictures of other colors are better than the picture of English Red. Either the car is faded or they had bad color on the scanner they used.

My car is English Red. When it was badly oxidized, it looked like the car they have for English Red. Once it was repainted, it looked like the 79 they had listed on oursl.com. My avatar is the front end of my car, after paint. It doesn't look like the color they show on that website.

Sorry, I think I must have been in a grumpy mood.

English Red

My SL is English Red. Actual color is more like orange, which I found quite obnoxious at first. However, it is a sports car (read: "fun"), after all.
Have gotten used to it...
