IIRC the code was different for each model year.

My 1989 is AR776 "Grigio Medio Metallizzato". There is usually a sticker on the bottom of the trunk lid that lists paint codes and colors.

The 1969 cars are notoriously hard to bleed. In this case it seems a bad master cylinder was the problem but this is not always the case.
