W111 V8 paint colours?

Hi, My 1969 280SE/b was repainted metallic red by its previous owner. Was told it's a W111 Benz colour, used only on V8s.
Does anyone know where I can find a list of colours (reds in particular) available on 1969 280SE 3.5 Coupes?
Have plenty of reference for MB colours and their codes. Just want to find out what was available on the V8s in or around that year. Thanks. [8D]

RE: W111 V8 paint colours?

On the options plate under the hood there should be a number " ***H " or ***G. That is the number for your car s colour,any colour in the mercedes catalogue was available for any model,there were no specific model /colour combinations.
Also "G" = glasurit and "H" = Herbert,the paint maufacturers.Both are available from the bigger auto paint suppliers.There is a Glasurit website for older Mercs ,acessible throught the Ponton website.
