72 Suburban paint code

I have a 72 C20 Suburban (white roof / red-orange middle / white bottom ) the only number I can find was on the glove box door 159310 white / medium red / white . How do you "decode" this number to find the exact color ? any help would be appreciated bc I have no clue where to go from here

Re: 72 Suburban paint code

You paint scheme sounds correct for 593

Which is 514 Red and 521 White

Saw a pickup at a show and the owner said his color blue was Hawaiian Blue and white. Which blue would that be?
