Hi everyone, Ive been a frequent visitor of this site for almost a year now since I bought my 69 GT. This is my frist post though (Ive found answers to all my other questions in previous posts). Anyway after much rust work and prep time I am getting closer to painting. I would like to keep the car its origional color. From previous posts I realize the paint code should be on the body tag but my tag is a little different then others I have seen on this site. It does not state "Acrylic" or "Enamel" and the number is L75.1 JJ. I have not seen this number in any previous posts. See the attached pic ( I hope it works). Im leaning toward flame red but if anyone knows for sure I would greatly appreciate it.

Thanks,
Matt

Been Searching!

Cannot find a listing for L751 JJ anywhere. I have 1969, 1971, 72 & 73 paint specs but am mising 1970 ......

The highest "L" code I can find is L530 MM Deep Burgundy

BTW L508 RR-JJ is Flame Red with Ditzler code 71890 for acrylic lacquer and 71891 for enamel

Also, since your car is Bochum, Germany production it is most likely enamel.

Wasn't the JJ a rallye red for that year? Actually it was and is listed on the web page linked as rally red #7734 color code of JJ.

I did have a look at http://www.autocolorlibrary.com and didnt see anything. The car was definatly red origionally. Is L75.1 the paint code or is JJ, one is for the interior correct?.............. ok nevermind I see the rallye red on the chart as 520/JJ and I also see cardinal red as just JJ. so now that it is narrowed to two colors which is it????

All my books show the paint code being the letters. From there you can double check the color name and start with the paint chips that will give you the color codes based on the year and make for what you had. My 69 was that color and I buffed off the oxidation once. It looked like I slaughtered something in the front yard. That was in 78 and it was a bright red one.
