I am searching for the correct colour of the Magnetti Marelli ignition coil.

It is currently red, but underneath this red top layer is a layer of a lighter colour red.

Does anyone have an known original, or photos of what is believed to be an original?

Can anyone tell me whether red is correct, whether dark or light colour?


Thanks

The following is from a Maserati thrread that I follow, they use the same coils:

Coils

The two ignition coils were painted and decals attached.

Parker Hall, Kilimanjaro Designs, 601-638-7856 sells Ferrari restoration parts, some which were also used on early Maseratis. He provided the correct paint color in a rattle can, plus the decals. He also provided the two metal plates which attach to the air cleaner.

Rustoleum - Gloss Merlot

I found that Rustoleum Gloss Merlot (248567) is an exact match to the original paint. I had on an original unrestored coil and the color is perfect. Mine is the second pic that Mark posted above.
