I think your car was originally painted with nitrocellulose lacquer, not sure when they switched to acrylic lacquer. You can get those paints today but I think the lead content has been dropped so they don't work as well. If your car is giong to be a driver I would go for a modern urethane paint which is much more durable.

If you wish to mimic the original lacquer paint you can use Dupont Centari enamel with added hardener. Wet sanded with 1500/2000 grit paper and buffed it will look like lacquer and chip about as easily but is easily touched up.

Base/clear is more durable but difficult to touch up. It gives a "wet" look that some like but others dislike..............Bob
