Chrysler code DT3116 - red
This red automotive paint color is most commonly known as Toreador Red. Other common color promotional names include Bright Red and Red. The color formulation has been used between 1958 and 1983, primarily by Dodge; but also by Chrysler and Plymouth. We have records of this color appearing on the model of Dodge Truck and Chrysler Special Order / Fleet. See the full detailed list below.

Some Chrysler paint manufacturing codes come in two forms, the short 1 to 3 digit model/year code which changes frequently and a longer code which does not change. One of these longer codes which we track is the DT or Dodge Truck or Fleet code. This code starts with the letters "DT" and ends in a 4 digit number. These DT codes don't change over the years for a particular paint formulation; therefore, it is the best code to track the usage of Chrysler paint. In many cases Chrysler has assigned DT codes to popular paint from other manufacturers to use as special order paints.

In this case, DT3116 appears to be a special order paint for a popular early paint named Toreador Red by Dodge.
