Avanti Red was at the time considered an iridescent red. I used to call it "burnt red" as it was deeper than a tomato red with what would be later called a "metallic" look to it. BTW, the maroon appeared only on verty late production '64's, probably no earlier than November 1963 production Avantis.

R-5361 was the first Avanti painted Avanti Maroon. It was built September 30, 1963. My late brothers Avanti was also Avanti Maroon, R-5461, built in October, 1963.

Of course if the car had its original Avanti Red paint job at this point it would probably need repainting anyway, so why not offer what you would for one needing repainting?

I'm having my Avanti restored now and have decided to go away from the original paint colors. The Avanti red seems to be to orange red for me. Since I'm doing safety and performance mods to mine, I don't feel so bad about going away from original colors. Right now I'm looking at a Chrysler Crimson red as I am an University of Alabama "Crimson Tide" alumnus.
