I can find no indications of any repaint having been applied.
If the paint is original, it is nitrocellulose lacquer.

If you can find a supplier, this is the paint type you need.

The original color will have changed where it was exposed to the elements. Don't just get the colors mixed from a formula. Have it color matched. Then spray a test panel on a piece of sheetmetal to check the match before spraying it on the car.

Honestly, you might be better off leaving the original paint untouched, with the patina.
