Alright ya'll, I have been looking thru color after color for my 58. I called a few people to ask what color they used also. I got the 83 corvette Spectra red from several people. I got my body guy to get it made and he sent me a few examples of it and its looks really dark red to me, like a crimson blood color. I have seen Duke boys car , Donnie taylors car and Waynes up in carlise PA one year. Every one of them seemed to look different color from each other. Im trying to get ahold of Bill and martin to see what color is on their cars. Im pulling my hair out trying to get this right. Once the paint is on there its stuck. Does anyone know what color big wayne at darnells wrecking garage used ? Im trying to clone the ANGRY CHRISTINE and hopefully get that color correct. Any advice will be great. Charlie

Hey Charlie, the correct color that was used on Martin's car which is the correct color is PPG WA7211. This is the color, trust me as I spent lots of time on the research. Just paint the car this color and you have angry Christine. Good Luck. Joe C NY

I guess its the way the light hits these cars. Sometimes they look more pink or orange depending on if the car is in a building under lights or outside under street lights and in the bright sun. I see so many different pics of 58 Clones and not any 2 cars look the same. I just dont want to make a really expensive mistake I guess. I cant really be there to see the paint in person. I will keep ya'll informed of the paint progress. Thanks..Charlie

Charlie, when you are looking for a red color in the samples, you can reallyh get confused. I know I gave that up and I painted mine the same color Red one of my friends had on a 55 Plymouth Belvedere. It is a true red no orange or pink in it. But about the color of Christine I don't know. Even when they mix the same code paint sometimes the color is a little off. I have had that happen before. Probly shoudn't happened but it did.

My Paint color Is Toyota Super Red 2 It is about a 1980 vintage. I love the color but Christine Red it is not but I love it. Probly the prettiest Red they are. I may be prediduce lol!

my head was spinning when I saw how many reds there was !!! I really liked the Viper GT red but its to late. The paint has already been mixed. So I will let you know soon . She should be sprayed in the next few days on the bottom and inside to be put back on her frame. She will look great alone but different when sitting in carlise with 7 other Christines ...I will park mine next to Dukeboys so ours match..I will keep ya'll posted...Charlie

I would park it any place you want. Remember none of these Christines are exact matches for "Christine" in the movie or the book. Everyone is changing little things that the origional Christine ( if there is an origional) did not have. Your car is an extension of you so you can't be wrong. Park her wherever you like. Just be careful what you say about her shes kind of sensitive. Hee! Hee!

I'm very curious about this post/subject. Can you actually see a change in Christine's paint during the film?

Some people say there is a 'Mad' Christine red.  I don't think so.  The opening shot of her coming down the line looks a little more original like Toreador Red.  It was filmed with Fuji stock that gave a softer old-timey view.  The rest was 'Panavision' I think.  Marc.

I definitely agree with you! This definitely looks like 1958.

I also think it's great how all the Buckskin Beige ones were repainted red and doubled for Christine.
