Hi Guys, thought I would say hello and pick your brains at the same time.
I have just bought a red A spec Dart and would like to restore it back to it’s former glory and need to know the colour.
The heritage certificate confirms it left the factory red and all the evidence on the car confirms it has never had a colour change, It is currently a bright red that has faded somewhat over the years and in fact looks almost orange now. I know there are some maroon colours that are called red but this is definitely not one of them. I have read that there is a Royal Red which I suspect this maybe it. Either way it is a bright red that ideally I need the colour name or colour code for.
Can anyone help.
Thanks in advance.
