paint color code help needed
I hope y'all will tolerate my inquiry - I am not an owner, but I am in need of the assistance of vintage Benz experts. I've been unable to find some info I need, despite hours of research. I'm hoping some of you vintage guys may have the knowledge...
I'm working on the restoration of a 1974 German motorcycle (Maico). They used Benz paint colors, and I am trying to determine the correct color code for an accurate restoration. I've visited my local MB dealers; now using computers, it seems you need a VIN number to get any info - no paint chips like the days of old.
Specifically, I need to find out what the color code is for the silver color(s) used in 1974. One of my local dealers spent a good deal of time trying to help me, and they said it was most likely Brilliant Silver, MB9744 (744) - they said it has been in use for quite some time.
Can anyone verify 744 Brilliant Silver as being the silver color used in '74, and/or if there were any other shades of silver in '74?
Thanks for your time,
