I thought Alfa Red was Alfa Red or more correct Rosso Red and paint code AR 501. But it seems there is:-

501
521
530
538

and maybe more.

I know that I should use a colour match service but before my ownership the car had inner wing replacement and this area re-sprayed original colour. This is still really bright without any suggestion of fading so a paint to the original code should be a good match for some minor repairs around the original work.

So question:- where do I find the paint code on a 1984 Alfetta GT.

GT.
You can add '555 Pastello Rosso' to that list of Alfa reds, and (as you say) probably more too...

AR530 is Alfa Rosso Corsa (according to my Spider's paint sticker and centro documentazione)

Full list of Alfa Colours here:-

Alfa Romeo Colour Codes

But confusingly the following will drive you nuts. Other web sites repeat this same information.

AR501 = ALFA RED 1968 - 1971 SOLID
AR530 = ROSSO CORSO 1982 - SOLID
AR530 = ALFA RED 1988-1989 - SOLID
AR501 = PLATINO 1990-1990 - METALLIC
