Datsun 240Z Stock Paint and Interior Colors (US and Canada)

As was customary in the 70s, the 240Z came in a wide array of color options in the North American market. The most difficult to tell apart are 115 and 903 blue and 110 and 905 red although if you study enough and pay attention to the dates offered, you can get some clues. Only a few exterior colors were offered for the entirety of 240Z production – 918 orange, 904 white, and 901 silver. The others mostly switched over to slightly different colors for the start of the 1972 model year. Below are examples of all the available exterior and interior colors, as well as which combinations were offered, along with the years these colors were offered.
