Trim and Emblem Colors

Asked by Sep 20, 2013 at 03:14 PM about the 1969 Ford Torino

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Could anyone tell me the actual name of the color red that is used for the center piece that runs horizontal through the front grille of a 1969 Ford Torino?  Is Ford blue the color used in the 351 fender emblem?  The emblem has 351 with three blue squares colored blue.  To restore these items should enamel paint be used?

1 Answer

After research I found that the red color is vermillion red. Haven't found an answer to the blue. On some emblems it appears light in color and others much darker. Maybe the dark actually fades with time as it is exposed to the light. Any answers?
