That is the original color for the car, original special order paint car sold new in western Canada. One of two special order paint J code XR7 Conv, both were Canadian cars, the other car is a periwinkle blue and is in New Zealand.That's the third bright orange '71-3 Cat that I've seen... Our resident Scotsman (now Swede?) Quattrothedog, and that showcar w/ the blown 427FE in my gallery. I was thinking about turning BetaCat into the '69-70 Burnt Orange Metallic...
Quatrro's car was orange, but is now yellow... see pics of it here: http://www.flickr.com/photos/quattrothedog/sets/72157616273028564/Isn't Quatro's car the medium yellow gold?
I kinda like that original 'indian fire poly' better... I can really go any color since I don't care about 'originality' since BetaCat is Pewter anyway. Pewter just doesn't 'pop' on a 1-2-3 Cougar to me.You might try code 5M Medium copper Metalic - very close to Burnt orange and is a 73 color.
