Can someone help ID the color code on this '76 300?

So i'm in need of picking up a little touch-up paint - and i'm not 100% that the color is factory - i did do the check and it would see the only color close to mine was arctic white....this seems more ivory...

its a 1976 300d 115 body style - and it has been repainted - but im pretty sure it was repainted with the factory color...engine bay wasn't painted - and still matches....

Light Ivory, DB-623

Look at the plate in front of your radiator for a 623 number. Thats your color code.

'79 280CE with 226,000 miles
'76 240D 4 speed with 190,000
'85 300D Turbo with 266,000 miles

GONE but not forgotten
'76 300D with 195,300 miles
"83 300D with 174,000 miles

The colour code has a letter following it, usually G or H.
