I saw this car run in late '64 against Dick Brannans then newly built 427(not SOHC) at U.S. 30 Dyer,IN

 I remember commenting what an ugly color combo on it. I believe, and going on memory here, that the red was a brown or at least a very dark maroon.



As an aside, And IMHO the derogatory remarks about Fred Cady decals was uncalled for. Fred was a fixture at the Chicago area shows and I sometimes had the pleasure to be a "table neighbor". Just remember, before Cady decals there was no one else!

Most of the factory '64 wedge cars were hardtops. All of the factory hemi cars were 2 door sedans. Many of the hardtops were updated with the hemi. The Larry Davis Super stock book had lots of errors. One of them was the color of the Lawman. It was not candy red. As a person who saw the car in person in 1964 I can say for sure that it was bronze and not red. The Aed car has a slight red look to it which is due to the lighting when the photo was taken. Turbine Bronze Metalic was used on Plymouth engines in 1958 but I'm guessing that the car might have painted by the Alexander Brothers so it could have been some custom mix. Looks like the same color was used on the Golden Commandos cars in 1965.

At I-Hobby 2013 in Chicago, at the Round 2 booth there was a built-up of The Lawman kit with a release date of June 2014 ( maybe July '14?).

I asked Round2 a few weeks ago, they said it's still on, just bumped to 2015. They said that this announcement had been a little ambitious based on what they had been told before the sale and once they actually took over the Lindberg line they've reassessed the timeframe.

I went back through the pics posted and the one on page 1 with the wagon says "candystick" on the top or the 1/4 panel. Same as the ramchargers. Since they were candy also I would assume that the brown red color was candy. However I've never seen a candy red  look brown and I've been around alot of candy reds over the years. Some of it may be the camera and how the color printed plus scanned in. But even looking at old candy red photos it don't look like that. It would be a safe bet that the wagon and the other cars matched over the years also.

Here's 2 pics of some old charts. One is the metal flake and the other the candy.

If I had to guess it's candy root beer over gold base.
