Dupont Coatings does not exist any more. In 2013 Carlyle Group bought 
Dupont Coatings and renamed it, Axalta Coating Systems. Still the same 
paint systems but in a can with a new label.  Some of the older paint 
codes are no longer available from Axalta.  Here is the best resorce I 
know of <http://www.oldride.com/library/1960_chevrolet_impala.html>
