Which Color Gold for my Interior

Hey, everyone. Been researching where to buy and what to buy to spot paint some areas on my dash. I obviously need interior paint (which I believe is semi-gloss) and would like a close as possible match to factory. My interior is gold and I've found the paint that I need but my problem is that there are two different "gold" colors. One is listed as "gold" and the other is "ivy gold". The paint I'm looking at is OER Interior Spray Paint.

Does anyone know if the factory interior dash color was called "gold" (which is OER paint number PP805) or was it called "ivy gold" (which is OER paint number PP809)?

Thanks for any help!

Hey, everyone. As it turns out the right color gold was "Gold", OER paint number PP805 Gold to be specific. Hope this helps someone with a gold interior one day!

Ignoring OER you can find answers to paint questions on many commercial manufactures of the paint that GM originally used (PPG, DuPont, Martin Senor, etc.). They tell you what paint was used with what code number listed on the build sheet or encoded on the trim tag. They also show you a paint chip (which is next to useless unless your monitor is color corrected to the source which is why it would be hard to distinguish between ivy gold and gold) as well as what other vehicles that where painted with the same paint to increase your chance of finding a survivor at a car show.
