For reference, this is Titian red which is similar but not quite the same.

The doublecab is owned by Marc in California - it was featured in Hot VW's maybe about 10 years ago.

Those last two are definately Marc's truck, now I'm not sure about the first one. That could be someone else's notice rear safari and overrider bumpers.

Awesome color though.

Go to Lowes or such and get a lot of dark red paint chips. When you find the one that matches what you see on your monitor, go to the auto paint store.

Are you sure that isn't SWR? It is a '62 which would be correct. The first looks like maybe '63? which would be Ruby Red, no?

It's not the same bus. And that may not even be a stock VW color. Could be from tons of other makes.

Those are two different cabbies. The first one on stock rims was built here in Idaho by a long-time bus builder and friend of mine about 6 years ago. It's also shown on Busware's website for canopy promotion.

Could you please ask him about the colours on this one?

Emilh... it's been stated as Ruby Red. Maybe clarify what else you are trying to determine.

Sorry about my delayed response to this thread- kinda got lost in the Holidays. Here's the information direct from the builder of the double cab from Boise:

Body: Factory Ruby Red, L456, applied in two-stage. The color is very slightly tinted because of the clear.

Wheels/bumpers: Factory Silver White, L82 in single stage.

Even the pedal pan is factory grey. Bradford
