What colour is my car?
« on: February 07, 2021, 05:36:40 PM »
The chassis plate says code 224, which comes up as ‘Corfu White’ - clearly it’s not !!

The car is a 1990 126p and the paint is original.

I could take a panel to have it matched but it would be simpler if I could just find the code I need.
Has anyone else had the same problem?
Thanks

If it's not been repainted there is usually a little silver sticker on the back of the bonnet edge n/s

I’d go for a colour match, it’s always hard to tell from a photograph but it does not look like a standard Fiat colour to me.

There's no sticker under the bonnet & here's a pic of the VIN plate

I'm pretty sure it's a standard colour - here's some images I found on line of what looks like the same colour
Thanks for the replies.

Apologies, you might be right, I was thinking of italian colours but the polish colours are different.     Try googling ‘Polski Fiat 126p kody lakierow’ and see what you can find.  I’ve done a couple of quick searches and found code 445 in the attached link which looks similar to your car.

Bar Vitelli - thanks that’s great.
Code 410 also looks very similar.

I never realised there was a version of the 126 named ‘Happy End’ !! LOL!

The year of the car will probably give the best clue, if you ask the question on one of the polish facebook sites you should get the answer to your question.  :thumbup

by the Vin plate it says 224, I think that will be 'bianco corfu' so the colour of you 1990 126 is ......... White

The other confusing thing is if you follow Bar Vitelli's link, there are 2 colours both of which look like possible matches.
410 Niebieski Blue
and
445 Blu Tirreno

Niebeski is Polish for Blue - so code 410 is Blue Blue !!

I don't even like the colour, I just want to respray the new front panel until I get round to a full respray.
