Hi! new here. I'm restoring a 64 1/2 convertible. I'm planning on painting it red with a red/white interior and a white top.Either poppy red or Rangoon red .Similar to this car -

Heres the question.What red upholstery went with poppy and what red went with Rangoon red? In catalogs i see,red, maroon, and vermillion listed for seat colors. Thanks. Once i decide on the color i want to be sure to order the right shade interior. Also anyone have a Dupont or Diamont Paint code for either color or the code for the white on the dash?

Hi, they only had one red for 65, it is the brighter red. They "red" in 66 is marroon. Sometimes you see it listed as "red" and "maroon", and other times you see it listed as "65 red" and "66 red".

So a car that was painted poppy red would have the same color red interior as a car that was painted Rangoon red? Thanks for the help.

The poppy red in 65 was really an orange. It did not come with a red interior
