I have a 73 super beetle that was originally green. I want to paint it back a color that was available originally...but not green. Is there a site that list the standard colors for 73? Thanks

 Hello, I was faced with the same predicament with my car I just couldn't believe this color orange was original. I believe wolfsburg west has the paint colors listed on there web site olong with a color swatch and believe they are seperated by years. they also sell the original type paint used by VW

            hope this helps

I pulled my original show room 1973 Beetle brochure out of the glove box. The green listed under sedan is Sumatra Green.  Under Convertibles it's Ravenna Green.

He DOESN'T want green. I know powder blue was available. I'm pretty sure white was also.

Oops...my mistake on NOT wanting the original green. The other sedan colors in 1973 were: Biscay Blue,Bright Orange,Marine Blue,Kasan Red,Texas Yellow and Kansas Beige.
