Original paint formula - '61 Pearl White


I'm hoping someone can point me in the right direction. I'm having difficulty sourcing a paint supplier on the Gold Coast that can mix an original 1961 Pearl White (Dulux 4291). I'm aware that there's a later Pearl White code VW code (L87) from ?63/64 but I've had this supplied previously but it's slightly different. Worse still, I'm after an acrylic paint. Does anybody know a supplier in Brisbane or does someone on here have a formula ??

Any help would be HUGELY appreciated!!!

Thanks, Mark

Scans from the Paint Colour Charts

You will note that 1962 also had the same colour in name only with an Imported and a Local shade and there different again from the 1961 colour

THANKS vw54 (Dave) for uploading those pages from the original Dulux paint codes/formula's book. That's going to help a lot. I originally had the pearl white colour made up approx 20 years ago and from what I remember the colour was specifically the '61 pearl white. You've given me a few options, which is awesome!!

Thanks also to Old Dubber, I'll certainly make some enquiries with Hart's.
