V8 Packards do not show in the TCP Global auto color database http://www.autocolorlibrary.com which goes back to the early days. They probably have the chart and possibly could make the paint but just haven't listed it in the drop down menu. If they or the paint store cannot help you may need to take a small removable part such as the gas tank filler lid to the store and have it custom matched.

If you are wanting the paint to touch up part of your car that may be the best solution anyway. After 60+ years the old paint would probably have faded or color shifted. Unless you are painting a large section separated in some fashion from another similar color area, anything painted with new paint made from formula could stick out worse than what you were trying to touch up.
