Help on colour

Post by ICDC on Fri May 05, 2017 12:33 pm

I am looking for help to find my M/home white colour. We have a 1997 Ford Transit Autosleeper Legend, any ideas where to find the colour. Thanks J.

Hello, hopefully by lifting the bonnet, you will see the base vehicle manufacturer's plate with the respective identification markings. One should be the paint code. Sorry it's a bit vague but a Transit owner will be more specific. Regards

Thanks..just seen a list in the owners forum gives Transit 1972 onward ( ZA ) and that is for Diamond white and that's on the plate. Thanks again..

That's a bit surprising - I had the impression that from the mid-90's they used the slightly more yellow white (Ivory white, IIRC) until the end of the Mk5 production - certainly my '99 Transit based conversion was not Diamond White.

Just been to look in my Legend handbook.  There is a page giving all the interior and exterior colours.  The OP asked for the white colour, but there are two and this is noticeable where they meet.

Assuming nothing has been repainted the original spec does indeed give Ford Diamond White code ZA, but this is just the cab.  Ford's ETIS system gives this as Diamond White 73 and the chassis completion date as June 97 although A/S didn't register it until 98.  The main body is Renault Blanc code 355. The Renault colour is indeed a more creamy shade than Ford's.  The skirt and upper coachline is Austin Rover slate grey 348.

It also gives details for the adhesive coachline but as a series of codes; are they Pantone colour refs or some other system, does anybody know?

Yes Tony, just looked at my handbook and found the information 3.1 Materials. I actually looked at it before putting the post on, but missed that page. Thanks for that..
