Need to know EK original colours

I am trying to restore my EK to look original. I am going to respray it and would like to know the original colour schemes they came in (mine is currently white body with turqoise green roof). Does anybody know this info or where I could find out?
Also, what colour where the NSW licence plates in 1961/62?? Yellow or Black??

to find out the original colour names and group type, copy the paint code from the correspondance plate attached to the fire wall on the passinger side, and as you have a seperate roof colour you will need to copy the "top" code as well, then take this info to any auto paint supplier and they can give you the names, finish, group and paint costs for the EK,... As for the proper rego plate colours, it was the black n whites for most states back then, I think from memory it was the late 60s they changed to coloured.

good luck with the resto. '
