1940 Ford Mandarin Maroon paint
This red automotive paint color is most commonly known as Mandarin Maroon. Another common paint color promotional name is Monsoon Maroon. The color formulation has been used between 1940 and 1950, primarily by Ford; but also by Mercury. We have records of this color appearing on the Mercury and Ford Truck. See the full detailed list below.

The longer Ford paint manufacturing code is M1796 or M1796A. 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. These longer manufacturing codes are useful for tracking paint usage.
