Duco code is DuPont's lacquer code number. DuPont has trademarked all 
the good names. Duco, Teflon, Freon, Mylar, Rayon, Nylon and so on and on.

Do you have a DuPont paint store in Australia? I know they are a global 
company headquartered in Delaware, USA. Knowing how names change for the 
same company in different countries, do a google search to see if they 
have a different name in Australia.

It occurred to me that dash panel colours might have been common across all 1960 Chevrolet passsenger cars and if they were then perhaps 1960 or 1961 Corvairs might have used this same Light Copper Metallic colour on there dash, when a copper interior was used.
