I need some red paint for a 70 project I am working on. I use a Sherwin Williams auto paint center and in the past if I had a PPG or some other paint manufacturer brand number they could cross reference/find the mix for my old paint codes. I used to have an old mustang resto book that had a cross reference table but I can't find it.  Does anyone have any manufacturer codes for 70 medium red code T?  Thanks.

Pretty sure thats the same as the earlier Candyapple Red. I assume the “medium red” is coming off a buck tag?

Buck (build) tag names dont always correspond with sales names.

The color was also called “Counter Revolutionary Red” on some models.

You are correct I also saw "medium red" on paperwork as "candy apple red" for the same "T" code.  Thank you very much for the code references!
