Does anyone know the exact paint code and name for this colour Datsun 1200 coupe (this isn't my car). I've tried finding it online but haven't had any luck with it so far. The closest I got was the code 931 but I am not sure if its the one or if there were variations in the Australian market.

Thanks for the help everyone.

Possible paint codes and names in order of likelihood is as follows.

931 Sunflower Gold or mustard (name seems to vary depending on the region) 23577
920 Gold Poly 23576
938 Sahari Gold Poly 23615 (this is a 1972 colour. My car is from 1971)

I'm still trying to work out the colour codes for the rocker cover and alternator adjuster arm. I can't remember if the engine mount brackets where also some sort of blue. I may have figured out the colour code for the air filter cover but am not sure. Any advice or suggestions would be great.

When I get the chance I'm going to see if I can get some paint samples mixed and do a comparisons myself but I have no idea about the blue for the rocker cover. Mine was stripped back and resprayed black many years ago by someone and is now flaking so I was thinking about getting it back to stock colours again so any help would be amazing.

If I find out in the meantime I will post it here to help others if need be.
Thanks everyone.

Thanks so much for the input.
Cool, I've never done this before so I will have to check with them. I was just going to go into supercheap auto, give them the codes for the car and have them mix me a few spray cans to try out.

The car used to have all the stickers and labels but honestly whenever I take it to anyone to do some work on it stuff gets "Broken" or "was never there" after they go missing. So sadly I don't have the paint codes anymore :(

I really appreciate the help and advice man.

Looking at some charts I feel like the air filter cover is Turquoise colour that I have highlighted here.

I found out somewhere else online that the colour for the air filter cover and other parts mentioned above may be as follows: (Whilst he doesn't specifically speak of Datsun 1200's its probable that it may be the same colour used)

"The colour is still listed on the 'British Standard' database as B.S. 18C39, with HMG ( Her Majesty's Government ) Glidden number GL31557, and Glidden number name 'Dolphin Blue'."

With respect and gratitude to "gav240z"
If you follow the quote you should be able to find the source post. (not sure if I can link directly to it)
I hope it helps anyone here.
I'm still going to get a few samples and compare it all and judge for myself but its hard to say because I don't remember what it looked like when I was a kid to compare exactly but I feel a little bit better knowing that someone else has also done some research here so they may be spot on right.

I feel like the rocker/valve cover colour is going to be much harder to match though.
