Xf Paint Code...please Read

i need to know before close of business saturday what the paint code is for a XF panelvan which is just your average factory white...same as utes i guess. i have no VIN plates or anything that tells me the code so if anyone knows what the factory white paint code is id appreciate it. i dont know if there were different shades of white in the XFs or not but if there werent then i guess any XF that is white would do.
even if you dont know the actual code but know for CERTAIN that there was only 1 shade then let me know so i can see the paint shop about it.
if it helps it is a 1986 model (so the auction reciept says but with no VIN or rego sticker on the car i dont know but it is carby and does have the front bar painted white with the black strip along the front bumber so im assuming it is 1986)
thanks in advance for anyone info!

Paint code - Z Stark white - Paint no. LBA
Paint code - 9 Snow white - Paint no. ABA
Sorry don't know the difference. The Paint code is what Ford used. Not sure what the paint number is supposed to be but it was in the catalogue.

Mines Sept 86, and its code 9 - Sno White.
You can see pics in my gallery if you wish.. its more an ivory white when you look at it compared to new white white cars.

Re: Xf Paint Code...please Read

What colour did you end up getting? Looks to me to be Sno White from the photo. My XD (pics in gallery) is Sno White (code 9).

You can soon tell the difference. Sno White is a fairly dull white, sometimes gives a looks like it needs a polish.

Stark White (code K) on the other hand is a much brighter white, like a refrigerator White.

Also I have seen variations of Stark White in paint shops.
