Need help with paint code 817-9-2

I have a '83 SC, built in Oct. of '82. Since I have owned the car, I have never been able to figure out what the color is. The local dealer look at the original books/color chips for model year '83 and said that my color was not a standard color. Saying further that it must of been a "paint to sample". However I have read that if it were truly a special order paint, the paint code would be "99". The code stamped on the paint tag is 817-9-2. The color is a dark red, non-metallic. I have searched many sites that say they have all paint codes, but alas, not this one.

Any assistance would be appreciated.
