Alan,

In your vast Beta library and technical info - any chance we could get a list of colour options / paint codes?  Even just the options would be a great starting point and the detail can be built up later over time.

This question has come up a few times in the past, I'm particularly interested at this moment in time in Series 1 colour options, but I think everyone would benefit if we had an accurate and comprehensive list to reference online?

What do you think?


If a co-ordinator is required to compile a list of colours and codes specifically for the Beta then I am happy to act in this capacity.  It will require forum members contacting me with the details of their basic colour and the paint code (usually on a sticker on the underside of the bootlid / trunk)

Understeer is when you hit the wall with the front of the car. Oversteer is when you hit the wall with the back of the car. Horsepower is how fast you hit the wall and torque is how far you send the wall across the field once youve hit it.

I can see what I can do, I actually don't have a vast collection there is a lot I don't have! I do have some colour cards though but they don't always identify which year they were specific to. Give me a few days to have a look at it. Reds are very confusing as there are several racing reds with different codes, on your sample you show Bangkok yellow as series 1 but AFAIK it was series 2, series 1 cars were maya yellow (just how sad am I?) anyway I get the idea .........

Alan, yes forgive my lack of accuracy!

That should have been S2 for Bangkok yellow.  

With the help of all forum members and the original colour charts/options we can build a much better list of colour options and their codes.

Appreciate your input...

All

Michael, aka Fulvia 3 has kindly sent me a comprehensive list of Beta paint colours, codes and years.  So I am we'll and truly underway. 

Many thank Michael this is very much appreciated!!

I could not have asked for a better start to this little project.  Once again the forum and its members have already demonstrated what can be achieved when we pool our collective resources.

Watch this space folks....

The list is coming along quite well already:

Things that are missing:

1.  Colour options from 1972 to 1975

2.  Trevi paint options.  (Theo - Can you shed any light?)

3.  Colour options 1980 to End of manufacture.

I have included two column in the spreadsheet "Supplier Fornitore" and "Sigla / Initials",  my Italian is not good but I reckon that Sigla is the paint suppliers own code as opposed to Fiat/Lancias code.  These two columns can be built up over time and members can post a picture of thier paint code sticker within this thread or mail it to me direct.  

To those of you that have done so already my thanks go to you for such a fast response.

I do have some more info but no time tonight to dig it out, as you can probably see it all gets very confusing and colours changed within series so not as straight forward as might be expected. Not all markets took all colours and different models were offered in differing selections for instance in the UK it seems that the coupe ie was only sold in  red or black but the volumex coupe was sold in red, black,silver,met grey or white but neither representing the full colour range produced.

Early spiders up to series two had some unique colours I'll list these later. Anyway I think you've taken on quite a task.

That's great and to be honest trickle feeding the info is probably best, otherwise it's easy to get overwhelmed by all the info.

This is not a five minute project and I think it will be roughly 75% complete then the last 25% will get added slowly over time as little bits of info complete the jigsaw.

Just want to get as much info into one place and male it easy to understand. Not worried about what colours were available to what markets, it is just what colours were available for what model and what their codes were.

I'm not sure it will ever be possible to get completely to the bottom of this, colour charts are relatively scarce and often undated. I buy charts whenever I can but only at sensible prices! It is possible that the lmc library could hold more information if you are an lmc member you could try asking (lmc is not my scene so I can't) The upholstery options add another layer and unfortunately these seem less well documented than exterior colours especially with regard to specific colour/upholstery combinations.

One thing at a time Alan, interior options may well be done later - but thats way more complicated by different options being available in Europe.

Personally, I do not find this paint info too complicated once it is centralised.

I agree that it will not be too bad the hard work will be checking and double checking accuracy, as regards fabric options there may well be useful info on these in the parts books/fiche as each colour or pattern would have to be seperately identified by different part number

Will have another look at this whilst I am sorting out my brochure collection, I think it would be good to include a scan of each colour or fabric within the spreadsheet , eventually of course as that will be time consuming but accurate records for betas are so rare I'm sure it will be worth the effort.

Beta spider early, not sure if series 1 or 2 or maybe both as the colour card is undated.

Bianco Saratoga 110
Argento Nevada met 170
Beige Ceylon 124
Rosso Brighton met 191
Beige vinovo 190
Rosso capannelle 193

Actually I think it is series 1 as slightly later cars seem to be available in red whereas capannelle is a kind of burnt orangey red

Note that Bianco Saratoga is a different code to that used on late series cars!
