This thread has been established for reference purposes only.
Please, do NOT post here!

There is a discussion thread for comments, suggestions, discussion, errata, enhancements, etc. Please post there! I will read your posts and update the reference material presented here accordingly.

For anybody looking for information on red paint, please look also at this thread and this thread.

If you find this information useful, please consider supporting the AlfaBB by subscribing as a member and/or making a donation.

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:

1. Coupe
  • GT Junior 1.3-1.6
  • Junior Zagato
  • 2000 GT Veloce
  • Montreal
2. Spider
  • Spider Junior 1.3-1.6
  • 2000 Spider Veloce
3. Berlina
  • Alfasud
  • Giulia Super
  • Alfetta
  • 2000 Berlina
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.

Thank you!

Cross-Reference for Coupe and Spider car models

The text at the bottom reads as follows:

Note:
  • Alphabetical index for cloth upholstery.
  • Numerical index for Texalfa, PVC or leather.
  • Roman numbers for velvet.
The internal finishes with Texalfa embossed are available only for the models 1300 GTA Junior and 2000 GT Veloce.

The tonality of the colours is purely indicative. Alfa Romeo reserves the right to any changes in the above colour chart.

The Car Silhouettes

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.

Exterior Paint: Introduction

Sequence: The scanned paint swatches are presented in the sequence they appear on the cross-reference sheets, except for Alfasud paints (listed last).

Accuracy: Please be aware that the colors are not accurate. The scanner is not calibrated, color profiles are not embedded, and your monitor/printer probably are not calibrated either. However, these scans give a rough idea about what these colors might look like.

Resolution and Size: The Paint swatches were scanned at 150 DPI. In order to keep the size of the scanned images under 100 KB, the pictures were cropped horizontally by 50%.

Names: The names are provided in the following languages and format: Italian / English / French / German. Although the cross-reference lists the colors on English, I chose to use the Italian name for the title because I think this minimizes confusion for looking up paint colors and compare it with information that may have been obtained from the historical archives.

Paint Codes: I added AR-xxx paint codes that I put together from other Alfa Romeo information. Some colors have multiple AR codes (same name, different number) that may stem from different models and different model years. Be aware that in some cases different colors were delivered under the same name or the same AR number. I expect a healthy discussion on this topic.

Caution: Use at your own risk.
