Reddish orange color

Hi All, I'm looking for suggestions on a pleasing deeply saturated orange that tends towards blood orange or red orange. Easiest if it's stock color for some car, I'm going to be working with a shop that sprays Dupont base-clear and they need a paint code. THe best I have found so far is the Mercury Competition Orange from late 60's to early 70's, which I understand is the same color as Ford Calypso Coral from that same era. THanks in advance...

There is carousel red as used on GTOs. Do a yahoo search on carousel red for a color code.

Great choice! 69 was the year model for that one. Newer GMs also had a color called Torch Red (80's - 90's maybe?) which is real nice but more red than orange. Ford had some Orange-Reds also...its not hard to find one.

And if I'm correct, Chevy called the same color Hugger Orange for their F and G bodies.
