Welcome to the DMR Site for British Car Information.
MG Midget and Sprite Technical - Paint Codes?
|Does anyone know where to find the original body color paint code on a Spridget?|
It appears the VIN number doesn't give this information & I don't know where else to look...is the code stamped on the body or frame rails.

|contact British Motor Heritage, for something like $65, they can send you certificate based on the VIN that tells you exactly how your car was finished at the factory; color, interior, engine, build dates, etc.|
or there are sites like this one: http://teglerizer.com/mgcolors/index.html
which give you paint codes if you know the color. If you don't know what color it was originally, then british heritage is the place to go. (it won't be marked on the body anywhere that I know of)
Look in the Boot lid, tops of wheel arches etc, for signs of a respray.
