Dupont code 93-70106 - orange
This orange automotive paint color is most commonly known as simply 'Orange'. The color formulation has been used between 1950 and 1969, primarily by Fruehauf; but also by Ford. We have records of this color appearing on the Fruehauf Truck and Ford Special Order / Fleet. See the full detailed list below.

Dupont codes starting with "246-" and ending with a 4 or 5 digit number where used from 1920 through the 50's with a few "93-", "202-", and "210" prefixed codes thrown in early on. "93-" paint codes appear to be reserved for Truck/Fleet or very popular paints while the "202-" and "210" where metallic paints. As new paint types came out more prefixes were introduced and the 4 or 5 digit suffix became a very good way to track paint usage between years.
