    It looks like Olive Green #323. My '71 124 Coupe is that color.

    It appears to be factory color #374 Verde Brillante (aka: "Avocado Green" on USA cars):

    #323 Olive is a much darker green than #374:

    I agree with Jeff. I just uncovered the car and polished a spot. I haven't repainted yet so still have the original paint. The Olive green is not as dark as the chip shown but is darker than the pic of the car shown.

    I don't necessarily think that the pic I posted Is this color but, what do you think of Oasis Green #383? A 1966 color. It makes more sense though that a Rally would be painted a Rally color.. What I want is a color like the posted pic but as a metallic.
    P.S. Incidentally, how did you guys insert a pic into your message thread? It would only let me attach an image, not insert it...

    If you want a nice green metallic try a google image search for Alfa Romeo metallic olive green. The code is AR213.

    Wow thanks! I think that's almost exactly what I was looking for.... It might be just a little too muted..

    One of the many X1/9 metallic greens has an olive hint to it. I am not sure which color code it is. I believe its not 390 as mine is originally that color and very lime. I've seen others that are less in-your-face in an olive sort of way.
