* 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 Metallizzato (metallic). 

  • S stands for Sintetico (synthetic)

  • Sometimes the paint code is written like nn.nnn or 19.394 instead of 19394.

  • The original paint code was written on a sticker typically centered in between the hinges in the trunk.

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 ~825 cars where the original color is known.  As you can see, blue was predominant with silver and gray being the next most popular.

This chart is for the last known colors of ~1035 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.
