Datsun Paint and Codes

Recommended Posts

While looking for information regarding the mystery factory color of my 71' 510, I've found alot of different threads asking "What color is my Datsun? What is the code?". I think if we had a compilation of live examples of different colors, it would reduce alot of search time and unnecessarily created threads.

 

There are charts posted at RatDat.com as well as 311s.org. I think that these are basically helpful, but pictures of actual cars in good lighting would be even more so. Many of our 40 year old Color Code stickers have long since deteriorated, been painted over, or just rubbed off, and therefore don't really give us the info that we're looking for.

 

Some of these examples are from Ratsun, some are plagiarized from other sides via Google. Please add to the list.

This is the same color as my car that needs repainting; does anyone happen to know what the paint code is? I think it's "910", Houston Yellow. Thanks!

So, anybody got a paint code for the engine block paint? I've been using pontiac blue but it is a much lighter shade than OEM color

The engine block has a paint formula.

 

For 1200s, it is different from earlier blue and later blue.

Here is a better picture of the #303 green I got from a Hybridz member a while ago. (pretty rare color, had a 2+2 that was that color stock but it had been painted over a long time ago and was going to repaint it)

Thats Spanish for 'trim color' which are the words to the right of it... The color code stamp would have been to the right of that in that big empty space.

Turns out it was 664.  Tricked me.  They only used 664 till 70.  I have a 71.  Manufactured in 1970!  ahhhhhh.  There we go.  Back to original color.

Is this the #113 Green Metallic? I pretty sure it is. But wanted to know for sure.

My car has been painted a darker green. This is behind the seat under the carpet.
