Default The Big 'Ol Paint Code Thread (NF56K)

I've been looking for some color ideas for my 244 and found this thread which features some great albeit unorganized information. I'm in a helpful and OCD mood right now, so I figure I may as well combine the two and organize. At the moment, I'm just taking and organizing the pictures from that thread, but I'm sure there are more than a few colors and names that were missed, so feel free to post up a picture and name of the color (As I'm doing) and I'll edit it into the appropriate post. I'm also well aware that I can barely tell the difference at this point between 7xx/9xx models, so feel free to correct me in that aspect if I screw up.


2xx Paint Codes
7xx Paint Codes
9xx Paint Codes
S70/V70/850 Paint Codes

The yellow 245 with the 242 /single round HLs style grille is/looks to be Carlsbad Yellow.

I don't know the numbered paint code though. My 79 245 is Carlsbad Yellow.

I searched all sorts of photo guide to find a color to paint my Amazon. I found a TON of variance in pics of code #90 Dark Blue (Morkbla), but I went with it anyway. If you go today and get PPG single stage paint mixed in #90 Volvo Dark Blue (65-66 Amazon) this is what you'll get. I'll post several pics, pro and camera phone and you can select one to use for reference.

I'll get to adding these to this OPs, but I have work in a bit, so I'll just do what I can!

FYI, you have my car (code 433 Blackberry Wine Metallic) listed as a 1998 V90 and listed under the FWD cars. In fact my car is a 1997 960, and all 960s and S/V90s are RWD. Hence belonging in the 900 series post. Just wanted to let you know.
