i've got an LY5V and that one looks a lil darker than mine but it could just be the lighting... i'd say it's either the sapphire metallic LY5V, or Gemini Gray Metallic LZ7Z..

1983 Model Year Paint Codes

Standard Colors Codes
Guards Red LM 3 A
Black LO 41
Alpine White L 90 E
Copenhagen Blue LY 5 B
Pasadena Yellow LY 1 L

Special Colors Codes
Platinum Metallic LM 8 U
Moss Green Metallic LM 6 V
Light Bronze Metallic LM 1 V
Sapphire Metallic LY 5 V
Montego Black Metallic LY 9 V
Sienna Red Metallic LD 3 V
Gemini Grey Metallic LZ 7 Z
Zermatt Silver Metallic LY 7 Y
Sable Brown Metallic LY 8 V

I believe copenhagen is dark as well as Platinum Metallic. You're left with Zermatt or Sapphire Metallic:

If you're on Rennlist, you can see the Zermatt here:
http://forums.rennlist.com/upload/944abover.jpg

or Sapphire here:
http://forums.rennlist.com/rennforums/attachment.php?attachmentid=23297&stc=1

They're Both on the first page of this thread:

Of course, this is all assuming they stuck with an 83 paint code when repainting...
