Thread: Light Ivory and 911R Paint Question

    Question Light Ivory and 911R Paint Question

    Work is progressing on my 69 911S Targa project and it's time to choose a paint color. I have a bunch of Glasurit paint chips with numbers like SA027.50. Can anyone tell me what the code is for light ivory?

    On a related question, what color white were the 911Rs?

    light ivory

    for my light ivory 67 coupe, the paint code is 6604.

    for a 69 targa, light ivory paint code would be 6804.

    Excellent 911R question. I would like to have that answer as well. I hope to hear that it is 6604.

    I'm pretty sure that Light Ivory was what was always used for white 911R's. At least that's what it looks like to me in any photos I've seen.

    I've always considered the glass to be half full...that is until I reached middle age and realized that it is actually half empty.

    cool colors

    bobby remember this great thread? More color pics posts would have been fun, but what a great thread.

    I never got to add "with a red vinyl interior" to my first post. So for the record...slate grey with red interior is the shawn thing.

    Now, poor Alan B will not know what color to go with.

    There was a recent Pelican post with pictures of Seinfeld and his ivory 911R.

    His 911R was on Celebrities Unsensored recently (yes, I'm ashamed to admit I was watching).

    It wouldn't start and he was trying to jump it with an SUV. A friend of a friend who knows his mechanic told me Jerry forgot to activate an ignition coil switch inside the car. Distracted by the the cameras I guess.

    None of the gawkers there had any idea what the car was - I certainly did!
