There's Dark Toreador Red and Redfire Metallic. Two totally different colors. I'm not sure if there was a regular Toreador Red or not.

Dark Toreado Red Pearl is the maroon like red, not the dark-tinted looking red of the 06+. I have the Toreado red paint, its paint code is L7.

What a blast from the past... I loved the Dark Toreador Red Metallic on my old truck. I had a 2000 F250 which had a black bottom from the factory. I have only seen one other F250 with the same factory color combination.

It was a beautiful truck and the huge 7.3L diesel engine towed my camper like there was no tomorrow... :-)
