Hi Matt,
    I recently got a quart mixed up at an old time local parts and paint supply
store - haven't gotten a chance to try it out yet, but it looks pretty good to
look at in the can vs. the original paint samples I have to compare it to. That's
the kind of place I would suggest seeking out in your area - don't bother with the
local "Auto Zone" type places as they won't have a clue as to how to begin! lol

Not a formula for it, but they mix and sell it. It is spot on compared to original paint chips I have.

So, does anyone have modern conversion numbers for "Autumn Yellow"?

Thanks Jeff and Sean!
 
So the list of wheel colors for the CJ-2A are:
 
Wake Ivory
Univ. Beige
Sunset Red
Autumn Yellow
Princeton Black
Harvard Red
Olive Drab
Tunisian Red
 
The last two are interesting.  I don't believe I've seen Tunisian Red.  Anyone?
