How do I find factory colors?

How do I find out the original exterior and interior color of my car? My color of the interior looks to be a camel color, but I need the official name. There is a plate in front of my engine with a bunch of numbers, but I don't know how to go about decodeing them. Help. Cecil.............

Contact the MB Classic Center in California for a copy of the car's data sheet. That will have the original colour and upholstery (and other stuff such as the engine number, transmission number, factory-installed options).
