Abh I couldn't give you a stright answer on that, I "acquired" it from 1 of my previous employers and has been sat in my garage for nearly 4yrs!
I painted the chassis on my discovery with it a while back with the intention of doing the same as the van but never got round to it but to say its just had that 1 coat its weathered quite well.
It did thin down with thinners quite easily so maybe It was a tin of "old skool" red lead it was from an industrial paint suppliers originally.
mine came from ICI and was borrowed (not by me) in the very early 70's so it is definitely 'old school'
