I personally like to start a project with bare metal, where I know everything that is on top of the metal. The color of the primer is no indication of what it really is. Primers can be any color you want. Can't you check with the previous owner to find out what it is?
If you can't identify it, atleast you don't have that far to go to be back to bare metal.

Current project is coated with primer of unknown lineage. It was stripped to bare metal before being primed. I've been told it's etch primer. It's the weird olive greenish stuff most have probably seen. The car sat outside uncovered for several months.
The time has come to start body work.
My question is. Should I strip this primer off, starting over with bare metal?
Re coat with epoxy primer?
Do you need additional information?
