paint colour advice

hi im rebuilding a w123ce and want to do it as a kind of "custom" to my spec's but at the same time remain sympathetic to the original..

I intend basically only making cosmetic changes to the car, so plan re-trimming the interior with leather (black dash, antique bamboo colour seats, door cards, etc..) and painting the exterior a different colour.. I found a MB paint colour some time ago which was a really dark brown, almost black which I remembered as tobacco brown but now i've come back to look for a paint code realise isn't..

was there a darker brown that this in the MB colour range around the 60's/70's/80's period?
the one i remember is really really close to black, dark brown metalic..

any help tracking down this colour is much appreciated, any pictures of a car in this colour would be amazing!..

thanks in advance

ben

hi thanks.. i think it was havana brown i was thinking of; i found this car for sale in that colour and it looks about spot on..

Havana Brown

I remembered it as being much darker than that; i was hoping for something that was pretty much black with a brown flake if that makes any sense, kind of along the same lines as the aubergine metalic colour available on some of the CL models, but deep brown rather than deep red.. perhaps I will have to broaden my search
