    Hi, I'm not sure to understand your question?

    Do you want examples of Avorio Safari (white cream) ?
    Unearthed: 1976 Ferrari 308 GT4
    1975 Ferrari 308 GT4 at the Le Belle Macchine d'Italia

    Or do you want a white colour in maserati colour chart that could be close?

    It could be in that era
    MMD Glidden Salchi
    Bianco Polo Park 10.319

    but this is not cream but "clinic" white.

    Maybe this one, but I don't know if it's a a beige or a "metallic beige"
    Beige Eurolac 106E52

    If it's metallic than this is certainly close to gold. (like 16.818)

    Thx for the reply. I'm looking for a Maserati paint that matches Salchi Avorio Safari 20-y-546. There is a member in the 308 gt4 section that said he used a Maserati paint that matched. Ive tried for 6 months and hes not replying. So I thought I would try the Maserati section. Thanks

    That color is not listed for any of the Maserati models built in 1976. Not to say Maserati may have used it as a special request.

    What are you trying to get accomplished? Are you trying to retouch a car that is painted that color? Or perhaps return the car back to its original color? If its the later, is any of its original paint visible (inside the door, etc)?

    You may want to contact Glasurit as they seem to make an effort to support the classic car community

    Glasurit | Glasurit Classic Car Colors

    If you search their database you will find two Avorio Safaris listed for Fiats

    Yes I'm wanting to return to original color. And I did see Fiat 285 &286 Safari Ivory not sure if they are the same as Avorio Safari, But it looks like a play on words. Thx

    My website has some samples, look in the "Paint and Colors" section: http://thecarnut.com/maseratimanuals.html

    I am familiar with the 3500GT Frua coupe and know that silver blue was not this car's original color. If you need to retouch the paint your best option is to have the current color matched. If on the other hand you are looking for a silver blue similar to that car, then Celeste Chiaro would be a good choice. The Touring 3500GT might be Rosso Cordoba.
