medium red x candyapple red

(1/1)

hwblask:
Hello fellas,
Is there any difference between the "medium red" and the "candyapple red" exterior color?
Both means a T code, but why two differente names?
My mach 70 has "medium red" at the marti report.

Soaring:
The Marti report is correct.  There were no candy apple reds in 1970.  The medium red is the factory red color for a 1970.

hwblask:
Hey soaring, how you doing?

Look what i found minutes ago:

So seems like they just wanted use different names for the same color, according with the model (BOSS and SHELBY).
They used the "candyapple red" for the expensive ones and rarest. ;D
So i presume that the expression "candyapple red"  sounds better and adds more value to the vehicle than a simple, poor and usual "medium red"....  :P :o :o
