Original VW Beetle Paint Schemes

Your ’67 Beetle looks like it has spent one too many summers in the Arizona desert. Faded and tired, it’s time to consider a fresh paint job to bring it back to its former glory. Below is detailed information on the correct paint color schemes for VW Beetles from 1959 to — of course, your favorite year — 1967.

Thanks to Keri Dorman over at Airhead parts for allowing the mention of this information.

Thanks for the great information. I'm actually having my '67 painted right now and this is going to save a lot of research.

Hi Eric, painting my 67 Beetle L31 Dove Blue. I am wondering if anyone has ever done a paint match in the Martin Senour brand paint? Have checked all color look up sites but I can't find anything?
