Hi Bob,
Perhaps red it is - see link below...
Various manufacturers went with either a red triangle or a body color triangle - see examples below:
There has also been discussion among historians about black cars vs red cars - many seem to feel both are correct, depending on the era, but no conclusive proof one way or the other that I know of.

Somebody raised the question "What color was the triangle?" here the other day. Looking at this picture, the triangle doesn't appear to be black, but doesn't appear to be the same color as the car body either. Perhaps red is the answer.
