A List of Volvo Paint Colors and Their Codes

Here are all the Volvo Color Codes and the different models on which they were used. In this page you’ll find:

  • How to read the color code off your Volvo’s VIN plate
  • Where the VIN plate is located
  • A list of Volvo paint codes

Have time for a fun detour into some oddball Volvo paints? Check out our Cream Yellow 607 post and the other Volvo Cream Yellow paint code used on the S40/V40 twins, paint code 248. Looking for Volvo interior color codes? That interior color code page features many more product plate locations so you can find both exterior paint code and interior color code of your Volvo.

How do you find your Volvo’s color code? VIN Plate.

Product ID plate: Second column, third line down, #9 in the image below.

Where is the VIN Plate?

Btw, the color code on most vehicles is located next to the last line on the identification plate under your hood- usually on the front fender well, left side.
