      Looks like FK5 (burnt orange) Which is a factory color for 1970

        FYI. Judging by the tail panel, that’s not a superbee.

          Yup, that’s off of a Coronet 500 or R/T
          BTW that tail panel is beat to hell, looks bad against the fresh paint.
          That’s also the wrong stripe, and I don’t think ‘Bees came with the side scoops.
          If they did mine is terribly wrong.
          Also wrong engine call out on the hood scoop.
          Geez, I gotta quit looking at the picture or I’ll be here all night.
          This looks like a VERY amateur restoration. Be wary.

          Nice car. Put ac in it, tuck in the boxtips an inch and drive it.

            Judging from the side scoops, it looks to have been a 500 originally.

              The 500 scoops were wider, those appear to be from a 440.

              Not looking to buy the car just wondering whether it’s a factory color paint.

                First and only year for FK5 I believe. Great color though, I painted my 70 Duster in that shade.

                    There is a burnt orange & a dark burnt orange. Dark burnt orange is more of a dark brown depending on the color you spray it on top of. Two different codes

                      yes correct but a lot of times when they mix the shade it could very some darker to lighter to the metallic being buried deep to it being up on top top the painter can very that by the way they applies it also if its a Base Coat or a single stage they can very
