I think so but I'm not sure. I'll try to find out more for you, but I thought those were "color codes" not necessarily "paint codes".

The manual 5 speed on a 280 has got to be a blast. Mine has a 4 speed auto. Given the gas situation, that was a good choice.

I do love the 5 speed, I also have an automatic, different flavors for different moods and of course my '56 190 sl is for another mood all together! I love these cars!! The hatch cover I ordered has not come yet so I don't know the correct color yet but hope to soon! Thanks, Mike W

So far everything I read says that the interior resto guys do not carry all the interior colors sold in Europe. Apparently there was more color selection and interior material variations in Europe than here. In another thread, we had a controversy on whether velour interiors were aftermarket or MB stock, and in the process of trying to find a match for the color code I found out that the velour interiors are indeed stock but never offered in the US market.
