Auto Color Library largest online color chip library. Found this site thru Ford truck enthusiasts and Light Canyon red was the only canyon red offered in 86 . But the code isnt like the code on my data plate .
Theirs is 2e mine is R 140 or 146 cant tell number for sure due to m,y bad eyes and appears to have faded some on the plate.

So, mine could be a collectors item ???? LOL

Highly unlikely it is a collector item.
Are you positive you are reading the correct part.

the paint code can be found in the VIN as well, call up a local autobody paint supplier and they will be able to tell you the paint code if you dont have a door tag.
