That looks about right. If you look at the paint codes I posted, one of them is Maroon. They may have come up with the exact same thing. Did they scan it?

Here's mine. It was as close as I could find to Luzon Red at the local paint shop. They actually called it Maroon, but it's close.

But wait, there's more...unfortunately it's  hidden under 4 other colors and lots of crud. This is a 48, Scabby, #197040.

Thanks for the explanation Micah. I am going to replace a damaged section of the body and hope to get a sample from it. I will also check the tool box lid paint condition.

When I said paint shop, I should have said supplier. They seemed to have the most up to date equipment and put a sample into a spray can. Their scanner was hand held.

The underside of the toolbox lid is often a good place for a sample.

The tailgate darkened up considerably compared the the prior photo I pasted of it freshly painted in the sun.

How mobile is the paint shop scanning equipment. The reason I ask is because the paint shop I contacted wants me to bring in a sample piece, min. 6”x6”. Now I see where Steelyard Blues paint shop scanned the bottom of his Jeep to obtain a color sample.

Veronica looks a little too red to me. Maybe it’s just the photo.

The underside of my Jeep had an amazing amount of original paint. I had a paint store scan it. The came up with a 99% match. I had a spray can made up and I think it is a perfect match.

Veronica was originally Luzon Red (I believe from the paint left showing)
Here she is now...

Does anyone have a current Color Code for Luzon Red?  I took my PTO shroud to Sherwin Williams yesterday and they came up with this.  5AC-2826597-00 but now I'm wondering if that is correct, and if the PTO shroud was a different red.  It seems brighter (like Harvard red) than what I've seen from color ships of Luzon Red and a small portion of my firewall that shows the original color.

just got this 1948 cj2a and there a there are a few places that seem to have a bit of the original Luzon Red

under the hood



and a little on what is left of cross member that went under the missing tool box



there are a few other spots showing though the green paint that was sprayed over the whole jeep
