Rolling Rock Beer "Green color paint"

Hey guy's just thinking of some paint idea's for the truck. What color would be close to the green used on Rolling Rock beer. I'm thinking Ford may have had a brighter green that could work.

I think the Jade color mentioned is closer to my truck than to your pic. The Jade color is pretty dark.

Ford had a color called "baytree green" that was a green similar to rolling rocks, maybe lighter though. I think it was only offered in the '74-'75 models. I was in a paint and body shop today and saw a dupont "snake green" that looked really cool if you like light green.
