Thread: Bali Blue 1965 - How many?

  1. #1

    Bali Blue 1965 - How many?

    My car, although having a cheap respray in red, over an even older and even cheaper respray in gold, was originally Bali Blue.

    From the Kardex the car was completed 8th July 1965, although the VIN would appear to come from a sequence before July. I wonder is this because the car was ordered in Bali Blue and therefore the car was taken off the production line and held for a while until the factory had sufficient orders to spray a batch of cars in this unusual colour?

    Does anyone else 'out there' have a '65 Bali Blue and I wonder how many'65 cars exist in this colour?

    I also wonder whether any other Bali Blue '65s have VINs from an earlier sequence than the date other more regular colour cars ie red cars were finished

    (Lots of wondering I know)

    Bali Blue was standard color in mid 65, according the color chart.

    There exists a statistic in a Christophrus of approximative color production percentage.
    Also, if I recall correct, they painted the different standard color by weekdays, ie Monday red, Wednesday blue etc.

    More on 65 colors as well a 65 Color charts

    btw:

    All publications, print, online, whatever, world-wide, which do list 6412 BALI BLUE as a special color and 6405 CHAMPAGNE YELLOW as a standard color are definitely wrong.

    The 356C colorchart

    20M 9.64

    became the official order list up to the 5/65 known list.
    all 901/911/912, and of course 356C up to April 65 were ordered by this very one list:

    The standard colors here are as following.
    6401 Slate Grey
    6402 Ruby Red,
    6404 Light Ivory
    6406 Irish green
    6407 Signal Red
    6410 Dolphin Gray
    6412 Bali Blue

    Special Colors:
    6403 Emaille Blue /Sky Blue
    6411 Togo Brown
    6405 Champagne Yellow
    6413 Black

    Hello, my 65 #1744 is Bali Blue with Fawn interior. Looks like it was built 12 days after yours. My engine number is 901841, which is hard to read on Kardex but was confirmed by Porsche on the CoA. Here's the Kardex and some photos of pre-resto and resto currently in progress. The car was re-sprayed, but jamb color I think is original.

    Christophorus, December 64.
    Not relevant for 911 as the chart ends in 6/64 but they talk about Bali blue..

    Come on all you '65 Bali Blue owners, lets see how many remain.
