Try VGA16.
We used it on an old IBM (desktop) before we noted that the graphics
card was replaced :-)

Otherwise, SVGA has a 640x480 mode that is effectively VGA 640x480x16,
but with more colours. That won't blow any VGA monitor:

  # 640x480 @ 60 Hz, 31.5 kHz hsync
  Modeline "640x480"     25.175 640  664  760  800   480  491  493  525

The SVGA server will tell you the chipset if it detects it.
