Paint Code

How do I determine the original paint code for my car? Thomas has me half convinced its Tangerine.

isnt it on the plate in the trunk behind the passenger side head light bucket?

Wasn't '73 Phoenix Red, I thought that '70-'72 was Tangerine and '73-'74 was Phoenix?

I'll look tomorrow. I hadn't checked it before. I was just looking at McMark's website with the color codes and now I am not so certain of the color.

More to follow tomorrow.
