First pic looks like it could be Chawton White, though it's sort of tough to tell just from pics.

That's what I was thinking but I thought chawton white came around in the late 90's. Also wasn't it a 2 part color base/clear coat?

Based on the door hinge bolts being painted, I had assumed it was a respray...so Chawton would be possible. The Chawton I've seen was single stage, but I suppose it depends on the shop mixing & spraying it.

I'm thinking this might be Chamonix white, same as my '88 model. What year is this?

My disco was Chawton, my 90 is alpine. Between those two I'd say Chawton, but my disco still looked more white than this one. Could be the photo... The first pic looks pretty close to Chawton...

NAPA can also mix paint and give it to you in any requested type for your application. They can give you a bucket for brush/roller, a bucket for spray application, or put it into aerosol cans. If you look up the paint codes you can take it to them and when they input it into their computer it will return with the name and years for the make of auto. I did it with Keswick with no issues and to my knowledge no US models were sold with that color.


They could probably make you several different whites since you're not sure what yours actually is.
