I’m thinking about using Eastwwood single stage paint for my Street Cobra Roadster project. I’m wanting to match the old Ford Rangoon Red reasonably close. It was a non-metallic red with a very slight orangish cast. From your color charts I’m thinking your Reptile Red may be the closest to this (reptile – Cobra Maybe it’s more than a coincidence).
Is there any way to get larger color chips or a cross reference your paint to another paint code? From my research the orginal code for Rangoon Red was A-1440-R and the PPG formula is supposedly 72143.
I understand there will always be variations and current paint products won’t match exactly the old lacquer and enamel paint formulas.
