How do I find original color?

What letter in my VIN indicates color? Where can I view a list.

I have found on the fire wall, what I think it the original color and really like it, PO did a bad job of paining it white. when I paint, I think I will go original

Correct,
On your VIN tag under your hood on the firewall (below the brake master cylinder) there is a two digit number on the second row, in the middle. This is the Paint Code.

Here's another web source that lists colors for years '76-'86 by code and includes a sample of each color as well....
