How do I find the paint code for my original colour?

Hi all;

I'm doing a resto on my 60 Beetle and I'm not sure which blue it originally was. Is there anywhere in the VIN where that might be? Anywhere else I'd look?

Thanks;

Volkswagon Usually VW paint codes are stuck on trunk floor or pressboard panel. Look for a white sticker that has a 4 digit paint code starting with the letter “L” Sometimes paint code is located on left door jamb.
