    I don't have a clue, but -

    This chart shows possibilities, assuming what's in the vid is a factory color appropriate to that year - not too many U.S. possibilities, a few others also listed for 1977

    Bordeauxrot seems more plausible than Korall: http://e12.assertion.de/palette/de/fp/02a15l99.htm

    Here's a metallic - Rubinrot : http://e12.assertion.de/palette/de/fp/02a16l99.htm

    U.S. colors: Bordeaux Red looks closer than Ruby Red, seemingly: http://e12.assertion.de/palette/de/fp/02a19l99.htm
