Gold Paint for 71 Cutlass Supreme Motor

Does anyone know the name of the gold paint that was used for the 71 Cutlass motors. Where a person might find it? Any help on this subject would be helpful.
Thanks

I just found that and they are out of stock. I was going to contact to find out how long it would be back in stock. Can you tell me if the color matches the original gold color of the engine?

Fusick and Thornton also have it in the right shade - lots of $$ W-31 restorations have used their paints.

In 27+ years, I've never found an aftermarket paint that captures the smooth yellow-ish tint in the 1972 350 gold paint though. 1971s may be the same way. The suppliers seem to gravitate towards the more pure 1968-69 gold color.
