1970 Autumn Gold code 58?

Does 1970 Autumn Gold code 58 have a slight green look to it?

A friend had a 1970 Chevelle years agin with original Autumn Gold paint and a black vinyl to and I don't remember it having a green look to it.

I've seen pictures of 1970 Chevelles where the Autumn Gold looks to have a green tint and other pictures where it doesn't have any green at all. My friend's Chevelle had original paint that was in excellent condition and it never had a green tint.

I also have a 1970 Chevrolet color chip sheet that's in excellent condition and the Autumn Gold chip doesn't have any green tint.

I do have some PPG Duracryl lacquer that doesn't have a green tint.

There is no green tint in the formula for Autumn gold. It’s black, yellow, silver metallic plus the binder agent.
My 70 convertible is Autumn Gold. It’s a great color.
novadude and crowe-t like this.

I have 1970 Autumn Gold in PPG Duracryl lacquer from 2 different sources and both have a slight green tint. Maybe it's the black mixing with the yellow causing that.

I sprayed some samples of the PPG Duracryl Autumn Gold and it looks like an olive color, towards green.
