The person who reguistered it must be a bit colour-blind - the colour is clearly coral. My mother had one like that back in the days when dinosaurs roamed the streets and people watched TV by candlelight...

@bravada: for a car from the 70ies the 125 above has a quite decent colour. A similar colour was very popular for a lot of other cars, too, so Mercedes, VW and Audi and more flashing colour was possible.

The real orange of VW and Audi was much powerfuller. And note: the combinaton of orange or flash-yellow paintwork with hardcore-green interior was very popular in that years.

So my fater owned in the 70ies a 1973 VW Passat in "marinoyellow" (yellow with an orange input) with "wacholder" (strong green) interior. An my first car was in 1990 a flash-orange VW K 70.

So what's up? Does anyone have the impression, that these early influences had caused some irritating results in my brain? :whistle:

Oh, not a big thing, I was looking for it and finally have found in the neighbourhood (in 1990 it was a bit easier than today). I made my decision a long time ago - in the mid-70ies as a small boy. I'd said: "When I will be grown up, I will drive K 70". So I did.

My actual K 70, I'm owning since 1998, I've bought in Italy, because of the condition. It's turquoisemetallic. At that time I had the chance to buy the last produced, resp. the latest known, K 70 close to my parent's home (in flashing sunyellow), but I preferred to drive 2500 km for buying the other one. The reason: I don't like the Beetle-steering wheel of the late version.

No kidding, orange was quite popular in the early 70ies, also at VW's of that time. Remembering my childhood in the 70ies, I can say, that all streets were full with orange, yellow, flashing green ("cliffgreen" at VW) cars.

And orange cars shall have a better rust-protection, I've heard, too. In orange painting-pigments is a lot of Cadmium, this preserves for rust. Also a reason, why nowadays orange is not often offered by the car-companies. You cannot make orange painting without any -toxic- Cadmium.
