1958 apache paint color

I just picked up a 1958 apache 3100 and on the drivers side door post is a riveted aluminum plate that says paint 740E. I am guessing thats the paint number but I cant find anything on that number. Hopefully someone will be able to tell me the original color of my truck? Maybe 2 toned? Thanks in advance to all that lend a hand. neveridle

Good thing I didn't just tell you to scroll down the page as it isn't there. You will need to access this page time and time again most likely. I'll have to go out to the garage to see if I can find my old paint code books. https://www.gmheritagecenter.com/doc...olet-Truck.pdf

You didn't happen to flip the numbers. It doesn't show a 740 but shows a 704 That would be Polar green for 58 http://paintref.com/cgi-bin/colorcod...nuf=GM&rows=50
