check out MCW's website, they have paint codes for all types of OE paint. Are you able to get Testors paint in the UK? If so, they have a Chevy engine orange paint in enamel and acrylic jar paint.

you may try a Auto Parts Store or Auto paint supply Store... They typically sell engine colors in spray cans like Duplicolor or VHT... these will do alot of models but more cost effective...
