What colors did the 1970 442 w-30 come in?

Just curious cause i found a 1970 442 with platnium color & blk vinyl top. Still trying to get more #'s from the owner. Also is there any way other than paperwork to identify a W-30? I looked online but havwent found anything yet, also this 442 comes with a column shift. I would basically be looking at this vehicle for a restorer as most of the "good" parts arent there, so i would have to build from scratch, & if thats the case then i might as well build my existing with the options. Thanks for any info.

The column shift automatic was an available option on the 442 in 1970.

The color of my car is Aegean Aqua. Though I would say it is a bit (just slightly) more darker in person - perhaps a tiny amount of greenish - then what u see in the pic.

I know this thread is kind of old, but I stumbled upon it, Sounds a lot like the 442 I had for sale, dont suppose by chance you were the lucky person who bought it? Mine was an early production platinum with black vinyl top, column shift car. had the dash and seats, but lots of everything else was missing! Still a good base though. Wish I still had it, but I needed my Omega!
