Doesn't look Like any color of the period to me. Looks like a maroon and likely just a color someone liked when they painted it. My chevelle had a similar color and I wasn't a fan.

Paint store should have a "scanner" that will match the color for you. I beleive some of them can take it out to the vehicle to do it.
