Good color match for Hertz Gold Stripes

I am starting the build of the Revel 1966 Mustang 350 H, and the 2006 Mustang GT-H, and do not want to use the decals that come with the Revel Models. Does any one know a good substitute for the Hertz Gold. I have looked at many car forums and there is great debate about the right color codes. I know the 2006 is a slightly different shade to the '66, but I am going to be a rebel and paint them the same gold.
So if anyone has suggestions for either the 1966 or 2006 I would be most appreciative.

Thanks
Robert

Its not a vibrant in your face sort of gold, more subdued in shade.

Here is a link that might help you out in detailing your GT350H...

Thanks for the pictures. That is one clean car, though I think they went a little overboard with the 'gold' Not sure the leaf springs need to be painted with 'real gold' flecked paint. :)

I was looking at Alclad II pale gold, but alas its a little 'too pale', So far I am leaning to one of the Anniversary Golds from the 1967 color range that I can get from a few placed including Scalefinishes here in the US.
