Below you'll find a full list of paint codes for your Vanagon sourced from www.thesamba.com. (Big props to user kamzcab86 for his work on this list!) Keep in mind that the original paint might have faded, oxidized or be sun bleached so, though you may have a reputable company provide you with touch-up paint, there is no true way of knowing how it will match your original. Be sure to test in an inconspicuous place.




Though we don't sell touch-up paint here at Rocky Mountain Westy, we have personal experience with two online vendors: www.paintscratch.com and www.imatchpaint.com. Your mileage may vary.

Any colors with "~" indicate the color is for that model/trim level only.

If you know of factory Transporter colors, let me know and I'll get 'em added.
