Classic White Paint Code

Hello everyone,

I am a new member and am amazed that I had not discovered this great website before now!

I need some help identifying a color and the code that goes with it.

A friend of mine suggested that I paint a car I own a color that he referred to as "Classic White" which was supposed to be a M-B color used during the 50s & 60s. He thought the code for it was 737, but that is all he could tell me. From the pictures of a car he had restored, it was beautiful.

Does anyone have the info on this color, the correct code and who produces a present-day equivalent (brand, formula, code etc.)?

I expect a hundred of you can name this off the top of your head, but I'm a newbie to the classic car experience.

Thanks for the help

Please specify a model year in closer range. 50's to 60's leaves a bit too much of an area to be sure.

White color code 737 was offered from 1972 to 1985. For earlier colors that this, look at the paintscratch web site:
