Default Red paint

Rosso Corsa, Mustang Candy Apple maybe? I just hope it's not a Yugo or (God forbid!) a brand X color!

Here's an interesting history on CSX2085 and previous color but no mention of current paint color.

Turns out, that the restorer of CSX2085 says it was just a "Dark Red" color on a red paint chart that the owner picked (same as another car he had painted).

Really beautiful! One of the reasons I had ERA build my 289 BRG Slabside which I took delivery of 29 June 2014.

Great people.

I was reading through some of my old posts and came across this one. Better late than never, I want to correct Woody's and my respective ERA serial numbers. Our two cars were the two "slabside" prototype cars used to develop the concept and to create the body molds for subsequent "ERA3000" cars. Each were given ERAFIA chassis numbers and my car has a special plate that says ERA3000XP. The first ERA3000 production car was ERA3001 sold to Chuck Gutkie (now deceased) of Cobra Restorers in GA.

Woody's car is 2140 and now resides in Georgia. It is a great looking and riding car. Woody did a wonderfull job on the car.
