Does anyone have a paint code for the 1956 colors Summer Blue or Pigeon Blue that Type 1 CKDs sported? Danke!

Australian made VWs do not use VW paint or VW paint codes.

Hey Phil thanks for chiming in. The tense of your verb leaves
me a wee bit in limbo. I imagine you meant "did not". Finster provided a link that indicated that Dulux may be the best reference point. Can you expound a bit with more detailed info?
Cheers!

Australian made VWs (pre 1977) did not use the same colours as German built cars. They used locally made Dulux or Balm paints.

Thanks Phil! Really appreciate! Clears that up for this simpleton! Hopefully it can be cross referenced on this side of the big pond! Cheers!
