Would anybody happen to have found out about paint #69 - it is one of the last 5a from 1975, and nobody seems to be able to figure out how to mix it...

I was wondering the same thing, and wondering how you can be confident that it's what your car is? :)

Hi guys, sorry for the delayed reply.

I was under the impression that the paint number was included in the VIN - but I stand corrected on that.
Back to getting someone with a spectrophotometer to sort this it looks!
