In my very original 62 Monza they were kind of red primer with some blue overspray.

Enjoy the Corvair!

Most earlies I have seen were red oxide primer with varied amounts of interior colored and body colored overspray

Yes red primer and don't be extra careful applying it. Overspray in body color also evident on both topside and underneath. EddieB Dade City,Fl

Rustoleum rusty metal primer is a pretty good match for the early interior floor base color (and works great on metal that isn’t rusty).

Here’s the before and after on the rear floor of my ‘63. I did some cleaning, metal etching, and a little POR-15 in a few spots to address the surface rust, then blended in the rustoleum coat with the original.
