I don't know. The color code is three digits followed by a "G" or an "H". You'll find it stamped on a plate under the hood, over the radiator.

One web page tells this:
476O from 1978 GOLDEN BROWN
476U from 01.01.1979 to 31.12.1981 GOLDEN BROWN

The VIN you gave does not seem to be valid, I assume the Russian VIN decoder would give the car colour info too.

Send e mail to classicparts@mbusa.com with your vin# and ask for info sheet to be sent to you, it will have everything you need to know about your vehicle.
