i painted a 1957 chevy 2 ton that same color, i couldnt find the code either, but what i did was remove the hood emblem, you should fine perfect original paint under it, i took the whole hood to my paint mixer, here its the local carquest whick mixes paint for all the area body shops, there were 3 greens back then and having the hood there i could lay the paint chips on it, and got the correct color, by the way when you do the white trim, that isnt white! take something like the headlight bezel off and there should be the correct color [ not faded] on the backside of it, when they mixed mine you's be surprised how many colors are in that white, if you use just plain white, [ like there is such a thing] the truck wont look 'just right'
