On the cars for the USA/Canada, the paint code was on a tag (that did not
weather well) in front of the driver, under the rear edge of the hood, and
towards the top of the firewall. These tags did not survive on most cars.

In a service bulletin dated 01-25-68, the following are listed as codes for
the Corona 4-door sedan RT43 for the USA/Canada:
Code- Paint-- Color
1208 T-1208 Horizontal Blue (medium blue)
1297 T-1297 Solar Red (medium red)
1335 T-1335 Zenith blue (dark blue)
1352 T-1352 Pluto beige (light beige)
1386 T-1386 Orbit Blue (very dark blue)
1391 T-1391 Sirius White (slight off-white)
1429 T-1429 Bellatrix Yellow (lemon shaded yellow)
and we had one of the following
1322 T-1322 Honey Yellow (light yellow)
and I have seen the following or something close:
1028 T-1028 Spring Green (light)
1295 T-1295 Planet Silver (medium silver metallic)
Black

In paint chips from Ditzler & NAPA (USA), Kansai (Japan), Duco (Australia),
there are a lot of colors listed for all Toyota 1965-70 but I have not idea
which were used on the Corona series, and different colors may have been
used on cars to different countries.

I would guess your white is Sirius White; however, in the Australian Duco chips (and others), the additional white colors are listed:
For 1969-70 Toyotas:
1608 T-1608 Irish White (which has more black in the mix)
1551 T-1551 White Moonstone (close to 1608)
And for 1968, and 1968-69:
1427 T-1427 Usse White (whitest of the whites, touch of yellow)
1506 T-1506 Pan White (touch of blue)
And for 1966-67:
403 T-403 New Lilly White (looks more like a very light beige)

I thought that 1391 is the right color.
Thanks for confirmation.
