I just came across a code 387 "Blue" 450SL on ebay. WOW this color is awesome, I haven't ever seen it anywhere. My 450SL was custom painted by PO to be a similar color, but probably not a Mercedes color. Always figured it was not very period correct, but looks like it's close. First pic is the code 387, second is my car.

And here's the ebay link: Mercedes Benz SL Class 450 SL | eBay

Hi I have a 1968 Mercedes 280s that I am trying to find the color for. According to the plate under the hood the paint color is 503.

Code 503 was for a mirror: "503 from 01.01.1963 to 31.03.1983 ” OUTSIDE REAR VIEW MIRROR, ON THE LEFT” "

Maybe post all the numbers or a picture of the plate so we can help you decipher. The paint code number is usually followed by a G or H to indicate the paint manufacturer.
