Pontiac Lemans French Connection

Recommended Posts

anyone have a suggestion what this color might be? it doesn't have to be exact, but my mix is nowhere near it

I'd like to repaint mine at some stage and would like a closer match.

If it's a factory color, probably Canyon Copper, possibly Castillian Bronze.

Looks close enough to me. But your build must've taken place before filming - there's no damage on it yet!

I like how you did the 4 doors.

I haven't seen the movie in years but recall the color looking sort of a dark Maroon with a hint of metallic. You might check Testors one coat Lacquer # 1838M Mythical Maroon. Two Tamiya colors that would be close but no metallic would be their primer Oxide Red that is a flat finish but easily covered with clear. The other would be their TS-33 Dull Red again no metallic.
