Smile The colour of my car

I have a ford escort 1.6 16v lx N reg' 1996. The colour code is E4, but the car is metallic purple and i understand that this code given is for fiery red! I have since checked all correspondence, it definately is not a ringer, nor has it ever been an insurance right off! The v.i.n plate is original one, the rivots are old and rusted (ish). Although the car has been registered with 3 different number plates in the past, the one it has now, a private plate, and the original plate when car was brand new.
As far as i can see there has never been a re-spray, the cars colour is the original as there are no red marks left, either under the carpet, in the engine bay or between the rubber seals!
Is this a common happening with cars?
I have never came across this sort of thing before, but i have only been driving for 4.5 years.
There is however a 2nd plate been stamped onto the right hand side of the v.i.n plate, it is marked 'Aubergine' with the colour code for aubergine. That also looks very original.
It is so weird. Can anyone shed any light????
