    No, It's not the Red. It is the German code for "blut Orange"

    The original "early" Koni orange is a brown-ish red. The closest out of the can would be a red oxide primer with clear coat. I had original factory Konis on my '69 011T, and I had my local paint supplier do a custom color match. Here are photos of an original date stamped '65 factory supplied Koni. Note the "PORSCHE" stamp and date stamp...also I have never seen decals on original early factory Konis. The decals came along later as an after market item, or on replacement Koni units, and they have taken on a life of their own.

    Yes. ^^^^^

    Much closer to the color found on the heater flapper valves.
    A touch up spray can of Porsche "Peru Red" is very, very close.
