We were! The code is on the plate inside the left front fender, under hood. That’s a rare colour for an S70 and the year of champions and Princes

I think you have the Columba wheels on that too.

The paint code is 417-26 according to the fender tag.
I bought these wheels when I first got the car. I wanted to get rid of the puny 15" Wheels and put on some 16" wheels. I found a set of these wheels on craigslist with tires for $100. The guy said they were from an 850.
