In Topic: Accurate US-Market Datsun 510 Paint Codes?

24 May 2018 - 07:06 PM

Datsun paint codes with color samples...


Whew, hard to read those codes, but I was able to add a bunch of unknowns to my database for future use.

I updated my chart... but not really happy with not actually knowing which colors apply to which years. I hate to add information that isn't verifiable, but in this case I guess any information is better than no information. Hopefully over time we can refine this.

Thanks for your help!

Check this site for other colors and possible naming as well...


Yeah, I am aware of that site and couple of others, but their historical accuracy is pretty dismal... they pretty much list anything that MIGHT be possible -- whereas I want to try to have accurate year-by-year data for each model.

Surprisingly some of the best "new car" ads I ever saw were in Japanese magazines primarily aimed at the female market...


The older brochures show this, too!

'69 818 forest? green


Thanks! Updated the site and the chart above.
 

The HUGE problem with the paint code stickers of the 70's Datsun's, is that the actual # printed on the stickers typically fades and cant be read.  I bet 75% of the 25++ 510's that I have had, the # is faded & gone!  I believe that the new car brochures of the 70's had a paint color chart in them, maybe with the code..........??


I have all the US-spec brochures posted here:

Thanks 240zness for loaning your 1980 lineup brochure to me. It's now up for everyone to share:
