Where can I get pictures of 1979 Chevrolet truck color combinations offered by GM?

I want to paint my truck back to factory 2 tone colors just like it came from the factory. My problem is I cant find anything online that shows/tells what 2-tone options GM offered in 1979 as factory color combos. Where can I go online or where can I go to buy a publication that will tell me the factory 2-tone color combos GM offered on these trucks in 1979? Every '79 Chevy I see seems to be a solid color and I want to go white with another good looking color.

Thanks

wow, thank you. So now I know my paint color combo (Tangier Orange/White) how can I find out what portion of the truck came white and what portion was orange? Did they put the white down the sides of the truck? or was the top of the cab white and the rest of the body orange?

Here's a link to the sales literature for '79 if that helps any. It shows several styles of two-tone.
