Anyone know the original "red" colors (or codes) available in 1973 for a 450 SLC?
Is there a way to find out (or does anyone know) what the available "red" color options were back in 1973 for a 450 SLC? I saw another thread (thanks to very helpful forum members) where there are almost 10 shades of red...but I don't know if that list encompasses the modern color codes as well.
I discovered that my SLC started out in life as Astral Silver...but at some point was painted a "red". I want to get it repainted, but I'm not sure how difficult or feasible it would be to change it back to Astral Silver (pretty much everything except the engine bay was painted red). If I'm going to stick with the red, then I would prefer to paint it an original shade of red.
Thank you in advance
