On 1st series E3 Chamonix was by far the most popular colour. The E3-Club's registry lists 29 white cars, sample of 90 with known original colour. Overall the most common colours likely were Polaris, Chamonix, and Fjord, in that order, which to date account for about 40 % of all E3 with known orig. colour. Sample size is only 762, inductive inference, always risky.not sure that i have ever seen a chamonix e3
Scott, white on a 911 looks amazing. It does on every good design. e.g. the M3 E30. Apart from that, my battered E34 is Alpinweiß II (some neighbours doubt it), the 1971 Opel Commodore that went before was Arktisweiß. Had to learn to love it, though.... perhaps it was in Germany ... but here i have seen a lot of polaris and fjord. i love white cars, my 911 is white, my previous e30 m3 was alpinweiss ... but in the 70's thru 90's white was a color of business 'fleet' cars.
