There are color charts with factory codes online that you can find with a google search.  B210s were painted most of the same colors with the same codes as Z-cars were, and of course there's a much larger enthusiast community out there for Zs than for B210s, so you'll have better luck looking for Z color charts.  Most of the codes were 3-digit numeric combinations.

 

...also, make sure what you're looking at is the factory paint.  I think at least 50 percent of the B210s which survive today have been repainted at some point in their lives.

This is probably code 305, light blue metallic, only offered for 1978.  Could also be code 212, blue metallic.

I hate to ask but can you also get a picture of the door jamb please.. The color in the door jamb should be nice and clean and bold since the color doesn’t fade so easily there cuz there’s not much sun contact there. Thanks
