These colors remain with minor changes through today. The Curry yellow, one of the worlds ugliest colors, was finally dropped in 1991. Most good automotive paint wholesalers can cross reference to RAL codes. The DB/MB codes are harder to find references for.

The Germans in Gaggenau never offered black as a finish color until late in the 80's and only then as a custom order color at a premium price. What they did offer, but never listed was a white primer finish for cab/chassis units being delivered to body builders.

They even refer to black as "chassis black".

-Jack Russell

These colors have been scanned from the original Unimog color chips, and while they are a close approximation, due to differences in computer monitors and printers, these colors cannot be expected to match the actual Unimog colors.
The Mercedes DB color codes are also known as MB color codes.
