Dupli color does not have this color.

A decent reference for paint colors is:
Paint Manufacturer Codes
GM(Fisher code) : WA7084, WA8509
Make/Year Code : 59
PPG/Ditzler : 3087
Dupont : AJ222, 45205L, 926AJ222, 45205D, 45205A, 396AJ222, 45205
Sherwin Williams : 8584
RM/BASF : 9380, 13521
Glasurit : GM-8509, GM8509, GM-7084, GM7084

These folks have it:

Also some ebay spray cans, claims it is Sherman Williams brand CHWA7084FB_6:

Dupli Color only does the most popular current colors other than black. Of course they claim they black is a match to both the original black o my '81 & '14 Silverado but they are actually not the same black. Best to find a shop to mix you a spray can & use the codes ELCAM posted. FYI DuPont isn't DuPont anymore, it's now called Axalta since DuPont sold off the automotive paint years back.
