Default Having trouble matching touch up paint color

I have a 2008 Redline and can't find the right touch up paint. The window sticker calls it Ruby Red, and the paint code on the glove box tag shows "192" but the touch up paint color charts show no such color. Has anyone ever matched Saturn Ruby Red to other GM colors?

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

1999 SC2
Default Re: Having trouble matching touch up paint color

If it's the factory color I believe it's called Victory Red the paint code is 74/WA9260
I don't know what the 192 would refer to. It's not a GM paint code.

This site will show you the various locations that you might find your paint code:

1999 Saturn SC2 (automatic) 23,000 orig miles (9/10/16)
1996 BMW E36
1971 Holden Monaro GTS 350
1908 Buick Model 10

Thumbs Up Re: Having trouble matching touch up paint color

I spotted an Impala in a parking lot that matched the color, and I think that it is in fact Victory Red. My car does have the black leather combination interior. Thanks for your help.

Default Re: Having trouble matching touch up paint color

Oh, boy am I on the wrong track. Definitely NOT Victory Red. My Monroney sticker calls it Ruby Red, a color that shows up nowhere. But the other color is darker. Let me see if I can find a picture.
