'70 Paint Color Question

I am usually in the Unibody forum, but I am about to have our project (a '62) painted, and I recently saw what I think is a '70 f100 with an awesome original paint color that I am trying to identify. It is a bright green, and can also be seen in the NPD catalog and advertisements for the 48-79 F series.

Can someone confirm if this is Explorer Green, and any pictures of an F100 with this color would be greatly appreciated....it's a big step to change the color of our Uni.

Thanks in advance.

I apologize I do not have a picture at this time of my truck that I am restoring,But it is an original 1970 explorer green f-250. Yes,the truck in the 7th edition NPD catalog is an explorer green f-100. The link posted above for the color chart is showing the color darker than it really is. The NPD catalog photos are very accurate.That truck is an extremely low mileage well preserved original.
