1974 Ford Truck Coral paint
This red orange automotive paint color is most commonly known as Calypso Coral. Other common color promotional names include Coral, Poppy Red, Competition Orange, Red, Competition Red, Thanks Vermilion, Mexicalia Red, and Medium Coral. The color formulation has been used between 1941 and 1983, primarily by Ford; but also by Mercury, Chrysler, Case, and American Airlines. We have records of this color appearing on the following models: Ford Truck, Mustang, Comet, Chrysler Special Order / Fleet, Cougar, and Falcon. See the full detailed list below.

The longer Ford paint manufacturing code is M1730 or M1730A. Ford production paint codes starting with M are usually followed by a 4 digit number and the letter "A" indicating its an exterior paint. The same code ending in the letter "G" is common for interior paints. The longer Chrysler paint manufacturing code, sometimes called the "Dodge Truck paint code" is DT3338. These longer manufacturing codes are useful for tracking paint usage.
