autocolorlibrary has it in your choice of enamel, urethane, lacquer, or BC/CC. Lacquer, which is original to the car, is $180 a gallon for crocus yellow and $140 for laurel green.

I have a 56 chev wagon that is crocus yellow and black. I do buy all my stuff at Penensula color and got what I need. The code for the yellow is DCC 81888ALT. This is a PPg code for single stage acrlic urethane. This is what is called an alternate formula, which means it is very close but not exact. Oh it is called saturn yellow in this formula.

I also own a 56 Chevy that I needed lacquer paint for just recently. Only one supplier in the Louisville, KY area still carries lacquer. Cost me $46 for a pint. How much do you need? You do know you can't use BC/CC over lacquer? If you can't get it anywhere, let me know.
