the stamped plate in the second picture also has the paint code but it's the sales code for the paint, lower and upper body, in the pictured example R1R1 is pastel white, the stamped plate is nearly always present so the original paint colour can be worked out, just post it up with the year and we can tell you what it was

It’s L90D listed as paint no on the sticker. Pastellweiss
It’s also on the silver sticker next to the stamped plate

Sorry I was half asleep last night and didn’t realise the pics were bigherb’s bus.
Google offers nothing. Perhaps a local paint factor, or dare I say it Halfords paint counter, can help?

Exactly the page I’d been looking for! IIRC the code is doubled for top and bottom as a lot of vans were two tone? So Marsala red top and bottom? No idea what the LL refers to though, interior colour?

Correct, top/bottom colours.

the LL is the interior trim, in this case black leatherette - I just happen to have a 1979 brochure scanned in for convenience :wink:
