Anyone have any pics of their bronco in factory medium copper? Mine had that color originally (and raven black) but was painted over with a different orange, and what remains of the original looks very faded. I'd like to see what medium copper looks like in good shape.

I saw that one! I like that color a lot. The problem was I was google searching and getting anything from orange to copper to brown as a result. According to my Martis report (I don't have the fancy expensive one) mine was 1 of 38 made in 78 with the same paint codes, and 1 of 6 with the same paint and trim options. I'm wondering if I paid for the fancier report if it would be a one-of-a kind in any respect? I think I'll go back to the original orange and black once I'm done with the restoration. I think it will look pretty slick and be pretty unique even among broncos of this vintage.

I feel like this color is pretty uncommon. When I first got my bronco, the color didn't do much for me. The more I've stared at it, the more I want to go back with the Medium Copper. I think it would look really good with the white top, and a white front winch bumper. I've even thought about doing the freewheeling style stripes in white as well. I'm still up in the air about the ultimate look for the bronco, but I'm pretty sure I will eventually repaint it Medium Copper.

That is one of my favorite colors, I had a two tone 96 F150 Desert copper and Arizona beige, best paint on any truck i have owned.

Here's the Martis report and a few photos. The orange is a lighter shade than the original. I'd keep the same color scheme but change the orange back to original.
