You might try contacting Jameston at Scalefinishes, he has been very helpful to me in matching colors for several projects.  I recently picked up one of the Salvino Jr's 1979 Oldsmobile Busch NASCAR kits, and the Tamiya blue called out in the instructions was not right for the car from the pictures I found online of the real car.  He was able to get the correct blue.

The car pictured is actually the 305 cubic inch Charger Dick Brooks drove at 1971 Daytona 500. It was built by Mario Rossi who also built the Dodge Daytona's that Allison drove in 1969 , so The colors are probably the same . Dont know what the correct colors are though. I just used tamiya rattle can gold and red on the Brook's Charger I built. Wasn't real happy with the gold. Came out real dull. Does rattle can tamiya have a shelf life?
