It's an interesting question. I agree with Arno that you need to get more info from the Alfa Historichal Archives.
Why is the question interesting?
The sales literature and press pictures prominently show white cars, but none of the Alfa sales literature and none of the Alfa bibles (most notably D'Amico & Tabucchi) list white colors for 102 and 106 Spiders. The references all seem to come from technical bulletins and research by the likes of Tom Zat, Eric Harrison, etc.
Here are the PPG codes for above mentioned paints:
Bianco (White, Mayflower White / no AR code found): PPG # 8606
Bianco Gardenia (Gardenia White / AR-005): PPG # ALF005
Bianco Gardenia (Gardenia White / AR-107): PPG # 8382
Bianco Antico (Antique White, Cream White / AR-010): PPG # 8393, ALF010
Biancospino (White, Chalk White, Hawthorn White, AR-001, AR-013): PPG # 8812
Giallo Paglierino (Pale Yellow, AR-105): PPG # none available (but Glasurit lists a formula on their web site
I wouldn't want to bet whether the correct color is Gardenia White (and which one of the two) or Antique White, but Hawthorn or Chalk White (Biancospino) is also a contender (although not listed above). Giallo Paglierino is a straw yellow color with a hint of green -- way too yellow to be considered a white. BTW: My records show different KF factory codes for Giallo Paglierino and Indian Ivory.
Again, the Alfa archives may provide some clarification. Please post what their response is. It would provide another piece for documenting and figuring out the paint puzzle.
