I know computers can skew colors but that looks more like harvard red.  Here is mine in Harvard Red.

One of the best examples of Luzon Red is Allen Boyd's Lefty.  Here's one photo of it.

OK,
Here is the perfect match for Harvard red:
PPG Delstar DAR 72182H Red
With DXR 80 hardener
over DP74LF primer
I think I used about 1.3 gallons. That may seem like a lot as to paint a car would be a lot less, but on the jeep you are painting the bottom side of the tub, inside of the tub, tool box, under dash, firewall etc.
Out of all the W-O colors I think this is the flashiest. I know my jeep turns a lot of heads.

Cool! Love that color!
Not to detract, but how about the Blue guys, yellow guys, tan, too!
Wouldn't it be good to put all these 'color' threads together somewhere on the site?
Fun!

They'll have to start their own thread. LOL I started this one since I'm trying to expose the original paint on my '49 3A.

WOW.... love your jeep Charlie. How about a few more pics of that gem.

to many jeeps, parts, and accessories to list here, but apparently enough to keep me in trouble with my wife.

My 48 still has a few spots of the original Luzon red showing, as does the 52 3A I bought off of munkjeep this summer. I have considered going back too it.

Sam, Allen's jeep is a real nice example, but it had been repainted. Sure would like to know whose formula was used, as it is spot on.
 
RIP Allen.

I'm normally not a fan of red, but I do like the look of it on Charlie's Jeep.

Hi Outback,
thanks for your message. The nice thing of LUZON RED is that itsn't a red color !!
Is like a "BOURDEAUX" , like a red wine color .....Wink
The other secrete is not wash the Jeep very often.........To be honest I don't like the very shine Jeeps.!
Thanks again

That, my friend, is the creed of a true die-hard purist Jeeper. Clap
 
As I always say... "Jeeps are meant to be dirty".
 
You're right on the colour, it isn't really a red red. Wine is a good comparison.
