Hi, Fred. Also the less common but still available dark reds. So dark and dull
There was one make, I think it was 46 to 48 Pontiac perhaps that offered five different variations on dark red. The lead designer must have been a Merlot fan. I know people from that time that wouldn't own a red car to this day. Perhaps the oxidation issues with paint, particularly red, was a factor in their decision. Heck, I used to wash and wax my Dad's '69 Chrysler and it needed lots of elbow grease. Today's paint technology is light years away from that time.
