    Thread: Factory paint colors for 1974 Beetles/Super Beetles

    1. 08-13-2004 01:27 AM #1
      I was curious as to what factory colors there were for the 1974 editions of Std Beetles and Super Beetles? When I bought my Super Beetle, it was painted blue on the outside but the interior and under the trunk and engine lids are a tan color. Does anybody know the exact name of this color? I would like to restore the entire car to this if I can find out what factory paint they used that year.

      There usually is a sticker in the front trunk that says which paint code your VW has. Look for it either on the right inner fender, or down in the spare tire compartment.

      1974 1303s (Supers) appear to have come with L80Z Sahara Beige as a colour option - see Wolfsburg West color chart

      Your Super's the EXACT color as mine underneath. I absolutely love that color. Whoever had my car before me painted it this REALLY sparkly blue, it's a really nice paint job and I get a lot of comments on it but I just wish it was the stock color. Someday though... Thanks to everyone who replied!
