I am looking to repaint my 72 datsun 2dr and i remember seeing color codes posted on here a while back but can no longer find them. The color is orange but i cant recall if there were more than one color code for orange. Would anyone know or could provide the color code for orange?

thanks.

Do you know the number? It is stamped in the top of the radiator support (next to the female part of the hood latch).

You might try here...

no, i couldnt find anything of the top of the radiator support. The web site shows three orange colors. It's a start. Which orange was most common for datsun?

Did your car originally have a white interior? I will take a pic of mine so you can see if it is the same - and I can give you my paint code.....

That would be Paint Code 022

I'll see if I can download a higher res pic of that chart.

EDIT - Ok if you double click on the paint code chart in my above post, you should get a much larger hi-res picture now.
