Dark Bright Metallic Jade Green

Hey guys/gals, I need some help. I have a car that was repainted about 10 years ago and I need to do some new paint work on it. I did not paint the car so I don't know the exact paint color. I needs to match the existing paint job of course. The previous owner said the paint was a 1970's Ford Dark Bright Metallic Jade Green. I can't find this paint code or chip ANYWHERE. I've searched about every site I can find.
Can anyone help? Thanks!

You can try here... but you'll probably need to go to a Paint supplier or Body shop that can use one of those paint matching gun deals that shine on you existing paint and creates your color.

I did this with my IH 1010 P/U and the results were excellent!! They used a handheld scanner, put it against the paint and pulled the trigger. It gave them a code, and they matched the existing paint!
