Packard V8 engine color

Hi all:
Later senior Packard V8s were a bronze color for the block, with silver valve covers. Anyone know the correct formula/color is still provided by Bill Hirsch and if quality has changed over time?... I realize many did theirs a long time ago, and products and providers change. Looking for top quality paint and original color match.
cheers, Roger in NY

I used Hirsch's bronze and was well satisfied.

I've used both from Bill Hirsch and Kanter Auto Parts; both were high quality paints and were matching in color, it wouldn't surprise me if they both came from the same pot.
