EDIT:

Did some quick internet digging and found this

from the factory parts manual
for 1979 model year:
Road wheels- Golden Eagle - Gold - (72-R-61)
Ditzler Code 23674


Now, for a little more digging to cross reference those paint codes...

i have typed every number for that code in there and i have had no luck in finding a place that carries the paint chip or for a cross reference.

That really sucks. I apologize, I did forget about this and never did any digging myself.

Hey man, you're welcome. I'm interested in this too. There may come a time where I need that paint too.

After some digging I found that Distler became PPG sometime in the late '60's or early 70's. I'm still working on cross referencing the old Distler numbers to PPG numbers.
