1976 Sport Color code 9V2 Orange

So here's my question. Yes, I've done a search. Many, in fact.

What color orange is the 1976 Sport? I saw the COPO document that said color code 9V2 -Orange. But what orange is it? There was no orange color available on trucks in 1976. I did read that 9V2 is a fleet color and the fleet orange for 1976 is Tangier Orange. So would that be the correct paint code? The only other orange for 1976 is Crimson Red and that doesn't look right for a Sport.

So, if you were restoring a1976 Sport, what would be the correct paint color and code?

Thanks in advance!

I think it was Tangier Orange code 88.

Yes, that was a sport only color in 76, otherwise, fleet and/or medium duty. 88 the code on a sport, 'special paint' code on a non-sport in that year
