A question that comes up all the time is: "what's the original color for my Fiat 850?"
I've published articles on that in my "Manuals" menu but Fiat changed colors over the model years and forgot to publish new color swatches for dealers and customers.
For the owners of cars in the "in between" years that sucks.

From a friend I got access to two books with color samples of Italian cars from the 60's to the 80's and after a night of scanning at high resolution I had a folder with over 50 pages of Fiat color information from Standox and DuPont. Even with reduced filesize, it takes a while before you have all the information in view. Click on the image below to see more detail. Each color card can then be viewed individually. And yes, you will also find the correct color numbers for your Fiat 850 here, although I do recommend taking your car to a body workshop to have the color determined exactly with a special daylight lamp!

So, in an effort to solve the problem (at least for the time being) here is an overview of colors per modelyear and for various paint manufacturers for Fiat, Seat and Autobianchi.


Click on the picture and a seperate screen opens where you can navigate through the modelyears and manufacturers.
Please note: these are old swatches; I scanned them as best as I could but swatches may look different than the real colors or paint in the can!
