I have it on good authority that the 'Chinese Red' (aka orange!) was
identical to the commonly-available car colour known as 'Toyota truck
orange' - in fact a post mentioned that cans of the Toyota paint were used
for touch-ups in final assembly at DEC, IIRC.

That's why it wasn't on my list of colours! Though it would still be nice to
have a Pantone number, I agree...

Google alt.sys.pdp10 for 'truck orange'.
