No, still known as a private or RFC 1918 address.  Class C is something
quite different.  As a matter of fact, is 256 Class Cs is 16 Class Bs is 1 Class A

You are completely correct, however, that this is mainly of historical
interest and has no immediate impact.  Even when RFC 1918 was published,
referring to the addresses classes was referred to as an essentially
obsolete "pre-CIDR notation."

To bring some substance to this comment:  changing to
"176...etc" is just asking for trouble, being wrong.
