RE: 1970 280 SEL original colors
your complete vin should be 108019-12-xxxxxx if you have a 6cyl. engine or 108068-12-xxxxxx if you have
a 4.5 l V8 engine.
You can not tell the color code from the vin.
Check the metal plate on your radiator support.
Somewhere in the middle is a 3 digit code followed by a "G" or "H". That will give you the color code.
If you post it here I'll be able to give you the name of the color.
