The only 'red' available in 1985 was Sebring Red which is paint code 3B.

The 'Spring Special' color may not have been red, but Dark Honey, Metallic (5D) or Garnet, Metallic (3C).

Here's mine before and after., can't help with paint code, my painter was able to match the color.

I haven't gotten around to buying the decals to reapply They're expensive

Here is a little info I found. I have a friend that has a Spring Special and I'm almost positive his is paint code 5C. I'll get in touch with him to verify and let you know.

5C is not a 1985 color code.

Its either going to be 3B for Sebring Red or 3C for Garnet Red.

How do y'all get these and where can I get one? Anyone know the paint code for Olympic White? Are there any other whites besides that one?
