Not unless you tell us whats on it. We're better with Mokes than mind reading ;D

Depending on the age of your moke the colour may not be on the compliance plate, it may have been on a foil sticker on the radiator shroud.

Hmm, nope we can't tell colour from those numbers. The good news is that the numbers match with when the cars were built, but there's no way to tell colour from them. I thought they were still stamping the colours on the plates in '72? 1981  is a bit beyond my experience, but I think you need to find the foil sticker. They often get painted over, so look for a rectangular sticker on the radiator shroud.

Also do you have any photos of the colours? We can probably give you some idea.

According to my Dulux book the colours Leyland used around 1972 are as follows

1970 to 72
*Camino gold
 Connaught Gold
 Damask Red
 Pacific Green
 Royal Purple
 Stella Blue

71 to 72
*Arianca tan
 Black
 Bronze beige
 Cadiz
*Gambier Turquoise
 Pale Primrose
 Rave red
 Savannah Green
 Space (Persian) Blue

71 to 75
 Bold As Brass
 Country Cream
 Dry red

69-78
*Crystal White

After 1973 there where a lot of new colours.

The colours with the * are definite Moke colours, the others may or may not of been used
on mokes but other Leyland products, ie Mini, Marina, Kimberley & Tasmans and what ever else they made around that time

have  a look at this page on the web site   http://www.moke.com.au/Joomla/content/view/250/82/    for paint numbers and names from other years then go to a good auto motive paint supplier and they may help you with a sample of the colour you want.
1976 Moke 1275cc (Dynky),
1976 Moke(Scarlet) current project,
1974 Moke with Suzuki GTI motor (project), 
1975 Moke rust bucket,
1967 Moke rust bucket

Tim,

Once they went to ADR plates in the early 70's the Color identification was dropped as it only appeared on the earlier manufacturers plates.

Up to March 1969 the BMC car ID plate was fitted to Minis, compliance plates started in December 1969. In between these 2 dates there was no plate fitted, not sure if Mokes the same but I'd reckon so. ;)

Hmm, my '70 (ish) Moke had no plate, I always assumed it was dodgy. It had a colour sticker though I think (painted green).
