Hi all

I have just acquired a 57 karmann bug and I want to paint it in the original color, which it still has, but I will need the color code. Can anyone please help me?

Thank you

Was Iris Blue available in 57 or just 56?

Hi all

Thank you for your answers. Now I am just a bit confuse since I am not sure wether it is a Pearl Blue or Iris Blue. I was looking both of them on the net and it seems more like the iris blue. Does anyone know it for sure?

Thanks again
Is that a picture of your actual car? If so, leave it as is!

Looks Iris blue to me.

You could get a "Birth certificate" from VW which should list the correct colour...

Yes it is a picture of the actual car but the right door need to be painted and the engine cover is not the original. I am now buying one but I will have to paint it as well. So I'll probably paint the entire car...

The vw birth certificate is a good idea. How can I ask it?
