Default original paint

anybody out there got a good pic of a 65 GTO in original mission beige paint? My car came with this paint originally and I am considering putting it back as the car is a mostly original very good condition survivor. I think it was a fairly rare (ugly) color as im not finding any pics.

Did you look at the paint code, God I can't remember seeing that color.

Original means it has lacquer on it. Now you need to find someplace that will sell you lacquer in the original color.
