    Re: Early 911 paint colors

    I have a 1973 911 which I plan to paint after the upcoming driving season. The car was originally Olive (414). I don't think that I can live with that color but would like to use a period correct color. Any ideas where I could get paint color samples? Maybe a sales brochere from that era? I have the 911 Red Book but all that they give is color name and code. Thanks in advance.

    You can try AJUSA ( They have a book with paint chips available. You should also buy the Dr.Johnson early 911/912 Restoration Book. He illustrates all factory options and colors with coorisponding numbers as a cross reference.

    Hope this helps.

    I have a 1968 paint chip brochure that was available to customers, and a 1970 paint chip dealer booklet. I can bring them to the literature meet in LA in Feb for you to review. You can probably buy any year of these at the Lit meet in Feb....

    Thanks for your help guys. Unfortunately I will not be at the lit show as I am an east coast guy.
