    That is not grabber orange. Grabber orange is much more yellow looking. Funny thing with grabber orange is, if you park next to an orange car in looks really yellow - and if you park next to a yellow car it looks really orange. One of those love it or leave it colors - I love it! :)

    This is 1970 - U code - Grabber Orange

    Calypso Coral is where it's at, my all time favorite factory Ford color. That's what color I'd really like to paint my Maverick, but absolutely everyone thinks I should stick with the Cherry Red, so guess I will.

    I have found the colors to be different. Compared to my car.....Calypso Coral is more red.

    I was told by the previous owner it was a Sunset Orange from Internation Harvester. Looked more like a Omaha Orange from the IH Fleet catalog, but there are too many shades from different years to tell exactly which was used.:yup:
