I`ve got a book called "Die grossen VW" that says some things about
two-tone paint scemes.
the first color is the car color the one in brackets is the roof color.
IŽll translate the color names from German into English, so I don`t
really know if they were called like that.

For the years 63/64 they are:
Rubinred    (black, white)
seablue     (pastell)
safaribeige (black, white)
black       (white)
pearlwhite  (black)
nutria (?)  (black, white)
birchgreen  (black)

The price was 85 Geramn Marks and it was only available on S models

For the years 65/66 the book says that the Variant 1600 L was available
with three different roofcolors that only have numbers as names. The
book doesn`t neither number nor what the color looked like.

There is only one picture here. There roof is painted till the
"rain groove" (I don`t know the English word), including the C-posts.
On the variant the roof only without posts.
For all the other years two-tone was not available.

Have fun with this information.
