* The paint codes come from documentation where Ferrari has supplied the original paint information.  It. stands for Italver, maker of the paint used by Pininfarina. MM stands for Max Meyer, another paint supplier. A or Acr stands for acrylic. M stands for metallic.

This is an Italver paint chip set for Pininfarina cars.  The color names imply that these are for 365s.
However, I think that many of the colors are identical to those used on 330 GTs, which just a fancier name.
I want to thank Jon Shirley for providing access to these paint chip sets.

Here's a chart with the original colors classified by general color group.  This is based on the ~676 cars where the original color is known.  As you can see, blue was predominant with silver and red being the next most popular.

This chart is for the last known colors of ~910 cars.  As you can see, clearly later owners think that a Ferrari should be red or they got painted resale red in the process of being sold.
