Production Numbers by Color per Year?

Did Mercedes ever keep records of each production year broken down by color? I just purchased a very clean and gently used (still with original window sticker) 1985 300CD in Nautical Blue Metallic with the optional leather interior in Palomino and was wonder how many of the North American 1,291 1985 model year cars were painted this color? It's fun ribbing the Porsche and BMW guys when they start bragging about how rare their car is and you can say, "well, my car is one of 1,291". Just to see their reactions.


Lower than the 1985 911 coupe at 1942 produced.
Lower than the 1986 BMW M3 at 6396 produced.
Lower than the 1986 560SEC at 4745 produced.


Just curious. An introduction will be coming soon.

1987 Volvo 240 Wagon

1991 Volvo 240 Sedan
1992 Volvo Wagon
2015 Volvo XC60

Someone should start a world registry to see how many W123 are still out there.

There are probably hundreds of thousands of sedans still left running, but the coupe and estate wagon are a different animal.
