Has anyone seen this paint color?

I'm trying to find a match for the 1979 Camaro Z28 factory silver/blue. Chevy called it "light blue", Can't find anything close, even through Duplicolor. I'm using rattle cans, not airbrusing so mixing isn't an option. Has anyone seen anything like this:

Try MCW paints. They offer original colours in both spray bombs and ready-to-spray airbrush paints.

I know Scale Finishes has the colour listed, but they offer airbrush paint only.

Tamiya TS-58 Light Pearl Blue.  It's a bit on the translucent side so make sure your undercoat is uniform.  I would use a light cool gray primer or Tamiya AS-5 light blue for the undercoat.
