The original color for mack fire trucks in that era was #3469 medium red. That was discontinued and changed to #400 red, which is pretty common. One paint chart in the mid 80's showed 5 different reds used. Mack used to use Kirker Paint years ago and is reasonably priced from paint suppliers and they have a good website. Shades of red can drive you nuts!

And most department's specified their own colors as well. If you are doing a total re-paint I would pick a red you like that is widely available and go with it. There is no "wrong" color for fire apparatus.

Money, sex, and fire; everybody thinks everyone else is getting more than they are!

There is no "wrong color of red" for fire apparatus. Every other color would be wrong in my opinion.
