What you see here was inspired by this thread and many other discussions I've seen about paint and interior colors. The information provided here is text searchable, either through the AlfaBB search engine or through the "Find" function in the browser (e.g. by hitting the Ctrl+F keys in Internet Explorer and Firefox).
The color schemes or names of paint are provided in 4 languages, in the sequence they appear in the Color Chart:
Italian ("I" = Italiano)
English ("E" = English)
French ("F" = Français)
German ("D" = Deutsch)
The names of paint and color schemes are refered to by their Italian name because (a) that is what the Alfa Romeo Historical Archive usually provides, and (b) ambiguities and/or errors in translation are eliminated.
Some of the names were misspelled by Alfa Romeo. Where this was obvious, they were corrected and the original spelling was included in parentheses.
The 1972 Color Chart shows the exterior and interior color combinations for the following car models:
GT Junior 1.3-1.6
2000 GT Veloce
Spider Junior 1.3-1.6
2000 Spider Veloce
The reference material presented here is extensive:
100+ pictures of the Color Chart book.
Comments (by yours truly an hopefully many others) on how to read the Color Charts (and why not to trust them).
Cross-reference matrices that show color combinations for specific models.
Color swatches for exterior paint
Color swatches for interior in cloth.
Color swatches for interior in Texalfa (leatherette), leather and velvet.

The 1972 Color Chart includes transparent templates that act as an overlay for the exterior paint swatches. That way, customers had it easier to figure out how a certain car model would look like in a specific color.
I put a yellow piece of paper behind the masks whe i scanned the car silhouettes. If I figure out how to do it (as well as the time to do it), I'll replace these pictures with transparent masks.
