Depends if you're looking for period correct, Cotillion White finished in 1976, it was replaced by Palais White from '77 on.

 

Cotillion White:

GMH code 1888

Dulon code 568-15951

Berger code 1J007

 

Palais White:

GMH code 1930

Dulon code 568-30521

Berger code 1J001

Bought this already painted. Tried about 6 different Holden whites for touchups. None close. The one that is a good match it Appliance White ( fridge?). It is a very vibrant white. FYI

To me, palais for sure, with the low gloss blackouts, really suits them like that i reckon, especially with the widened a9x rims, simmons, or hotwires ! Looks clean tuff & classy. Gary.

Just to let you know, when you make up a colour by adding pigments, it gains uv protection that a straight tinter doesn't have, that's why it's done. & quality paints mixed accurately are usually easy to colour match straight of the machine. Gary.

Gene is on the money mate, satin black, although gmh would have referred to it as, low gloss !

Tuxedo black mark 2 i think it was, happy to be corrected.

Sorry mate, my lx 4 dr, was palais with gloss black (gloss was the big trend at the time) i don't think i even have photos of it anymore though. & a friend is building 1, painted properly, looks absolutely brilliant, but the photos were saved to my phone that pooped itself 1 month ago, lost about 2,500 photos including car's & family.

The street machine a9x give away car was painted palais, with the low gloss blackouts & gold v5 simmons if you can find an old photo of it mate, sorry i couldn't help out, Gary.

Personally I think the gloss black looks much nicer than the satin on a white base.
I had that combo on my old LH sedan with whatever factory white it was.

I must admit I always wished the car was a colour other than white but to each their own.
