I am not 100% sure what color my car is? Need touch-up paint

I am not 100% sure what color my car is? I need some touch-up paint. Is OEM color in the VIN?
1976 AR Alfetta GT, build date 1/76, California car, not allowed to register in CA until 3/77,
CA considers it a 77 car.

Is the color:
Autocolor AR119 GC89 Giallo Prototipo - to my eye this color the looks closest, but color was not available until 1977?
or
Dupont AR119 44344 Canary Yellow - this was a 1976 color

Here is the link to Alfa Romeo color chart I have been using, also see some pictures I posted below in Sun, Dusk and Night.

Where do you get touch-up paint?

Thank you for your help,

ncng

The Ditzler code for that color is 82112, Dupont 44344, Acme Rogers 91809, Sherwin Williams 7054

Hi there, I just went through some troubles with this exact paint colour myself. All the different variations of the paint code listed by ossodiseppia are indeed correct. The problem I had in my part of the world at least was that all those codes are so old that none of the paint manufacturers have converted a formula over to any of the current water borne paints. I did have a little bit of 44344 left in a can that I sent to a local regional paint manufacturer, Endura and they said that they got a match. I'm just waiting for my pint of EX-2c to show up to see how it is. I'm hoping it's good as the Endura EX-2C is a true polyurethane paint which is easy to mix and use. If you find a good match for AR119 that is fairly commonly available, lemme know. :-)

Cheers,
