Hello all, finally getting around to the Moebius kit.
Will someone please remind me of paint colors? Thanks in advance.

Not sure which kit you reference. The Mercs were Rangoon Red and black.

Yep, Rangoon Red. The exact same color/mix is called Carnival Red on the early '60's Mercury charts. Apparently most manufacturers did this as I remember the Dodges and Plymouths in the early '70's had the same paint# with different names.

For the 1961 Pontiac there was a color called Coronado Red that appears to match the photos pretty closely.
