Folks,

I am looking for vintage Saab color codes and paint chips.

Does anyone have these? I am doing a project on this.

Yes, I have two or three pages of old Saab paint chips in an early ICI Autocolour Dulux colour index. Will endeavour to scan them this coming weekend.

Cheers,

Drew

Doug,

The Saab Color Palettes are now online.

With your continued help, we can get them complete, especially the vintage Saab section.

I'm not sure what you want me to do, but here's all of the color names from 1959-1984, and a general break down of what models they were used on.

Doug,

Thanks! I would like to include you in the contributor's list on both of those sections if you don't mind.

I am looking for photographic submissions of the actual Saab's painted those colors such as the "9000" section with the cars so people know what the colors look like in application.

If you got most of your current codes from paintscratch.com, why don't you go back into the earliy years and use the chips and codes they have there?

Doug,

Thanks for the help.

The Saab 99 and Sonett III section is 99% done. If you could help fill in the gaps there on the missing color codes and colors in those instances, that would be terrific.
