Default Paint color code for a '71 Duster + model painting Q's

Does anyone know where I can find the color name and paint code for a 1971 Plymouth duster? Ultimately I will be painting a model, but I want the color to be as close as possible to the original. I was thinking that if I had the actual color code, I could get a can of the real color spray paint for a reasonable price. Also, any suggestions/tips for painting are appreciated! I'm a fairly proficient painter, but I've never sprayed a model before.


This is the color I am looking for..


And this is the model to be painted (unless someone can locate a better one for me; this is the only '71 Duster I could find)..

Thanks a lot guys! That pic and the website correspond, so it's gotta be one of those 3, either B-2, B-5, or Q-5.. That pic makes me think that the car is too light to be B-5, but I cannot tell. I should be able to figure it out for sure with a little more research though. OT comes through in ~5 minutes!

edit: yeah this is True Blue.. I think that's too dark..

I got it off a Mopar site I frequent...but yes, I do have that one at home.
