Duetto paint code-

Can someone please give me the correct DuPont or PPG paint codes for the 67 Duetto red which I think is called Rosso Pininfarina? Thanks in advance, Fred.

Hi Fred,
PPG code I have is 71844. I've used it several times and is a perfect match for a '69 Spider red. I think the earlier Duettos are the same. Mix some up and see what you think.
Cheers, Mike

Thanks Mike! I want to be sure, again this is a 67 Dunlop brakes no booster car. It's hard to tell from this photo but the car already wears a crappy respray in the wrong shade while the dash is original. Want to be 100% close to original as possible.

I found this code back in the mid '80s and have used it on 5 or 6 Duetto resprays. It is a perfect match for the orangy red, not the darker red some early Duettos wore. See if your paint guy can mix up a small amount to compare to the paint under the windshield post covers. That is really the only place that won't be sun faded and it rarely gets repainted.

I have a similar ICI sheet but my paint shop couldn't get any of those numbers to cross over on their computer.
Fred, a friend just painted a 58 Spider from color we matched off the original paint on my 60 Spider. Would that help, or you think it changed by then? It is PF red.
