Volkswagen Bay Window Bus Paint Color Samples

Choosing which color to paint your classic VW Bay Window Bus is a big deal. Whether you're doing a stock or custom restoration, it's usually best to go with one of the stock colors for your year bus (IMHO). But if you're thinking about an original color from a different year bus, that makes things a lot more complex because Volkswagen offered a huge selection of colors over the years. Making an important decision like this, based solely on a 1" wide paint chip pasted in a catalog is tough, so to make the choice a little easier, here's a page of sample colors so you can see how some of the more popular stock colors look on an actual vintage Volkswagen Bay Window Bus. You'll find that Glasurit, Sherwin Williams, Sikkens, Ditzler PPG, Dupont and most of the other popular brands of automotive paint, already have formulas for most of Volkswagen's original colors (see a complete list of
