That is Matador Red. Carousel Red, no matter what you call it, is orange. It's the same as Chevy's Hugger Orange.

When the only tool in your toolbox is a hammer, you tend to see every problem as a nail.

you tell them year, manufacture and color or code and they will have the mixture either in a book or in the computer.

Yep. Carousel Red (or Hugger Orange) is pretty...unmistakable. That's Matador Red.
