Dave,

I was sure taken back in time when I saw the pictures of your '74. My husband had the exact same Corvette Orange '74 roadster (though ours had a tan interior)!! You're doing a fantastic job!!

Love the color!!! Do you have actual color name and code? Thanks, Ben

The 1974 Corvette had "Corvette Orange".

Thanks, I knew of the 74 color Corvette Orange but hadn't seen confirmed pics of the actual color. My 74 is nearing the paint stage, and we are leaning to Orange. If you get the code and supplier of paint I sure would appreciate it. Ben
