This has always been one of my favorite sedans!!
That's the color combo that I'd like to make my A roadster.

Finally back in one piece.....
Looks damn good!
Please post color information if you have it. Thanks
What color are those wheels? Inquiring minds want to know.
Recently back together, got a few bugs on it today. Sunshades red.
My Buddy Kevin's '34 from South Dakota, his Shop painted our '46!
Angle of the Sun makes a Hell of a difference in Color!
Hey Rick and Jan, 1982 called and wants their reflection back.
Seriously though, that is one smooth and perfectly maroon body.
My old '39............
Thank you Sir, Kevin thanks you too!! That Old Plymouth was in super shape for the age of it's build!
My 1939 Chevy...
Saw this one for sale on line today. Something odd about it but I cant quite figure out what, but it's maroon.
Do you have a paint code on that color?
This thread is interesting to me because this will be the color of my someday paint job. It's also interesting that these are 99% non-metallic. I have it in my mind to go with metallic wine/maroon/burgundy. Here's a few metallic internet photos I've been collecting. (There's probably some candies and pearls too, but again, non-metallic is off the table for now. My project is more on the "custom" side of the bell curve, not a rod.)............

I am finding that maroon (non metallic) is one of the tougher colors to pick out. There seems to be 2 major categories to the shade,
1. one being cooler and comprised of more red, purple, pink hues and
2. a warmer category that has more browns, and earthy tones.
Some of it is lighting I am aware but I have spent hours in the paint store this week looking at chips and it is difficult. I took home a pint yesterday (paint not beer) for a spray out and it is very cold, maybe too cold for the look I am chasing.
HD1084 just posted a picture above that is a cooler shade to illustrate my point, directly above that I posted a crazy car off the interwebs that is a warmer color. The 40 ford Mandarin maroon (Ditzler 50742) is warm but an old paint recipe that lacks the depth I desire. The color I sprayed out was 70 Ford Royal Maroon (Ditzler 50746) is cooler than I desire.
If any of you have color codes of a nice warm, non-metallic maroon that you wouldn't mind sharing I would be appreciative.
I now return you to your inflight movie.
The code for our '46 is Dupont Chroma Premier SpectraMaster Red RS468N
Man I feel your pain, picking a color that you intend to live with on something as important as a hotrod is a very hard thing to do, good luck!
