Paint code/color of my 71 521?


Recommended Posts

Paint code is gone from the engine bay and I have no idea what it is.   So much conflicting information on the web.  


Blue 567 or Island Turquoise 568?  Neither of which were used in 1972 according to this site.  




This BAT article says 567 and has to be same color as mine.  https://bringatrailer.com/2015/10/30/9k-miles-mostly-original-impressive-1971-datsun-521-pick-up/

Try looking at your tag with flashlight from many different angles. Sometimes you can catch a glimpse of a faded number. Also inverting the colors on a camera can bring it out. I took over 100 pics on my truck trying to read the tag. I got it though. Knowing what the number might be helps a lot.
