The 1979 Dark Blue was GM color code WA7103.

It was used in 1979 only.

I found the following supplier codes at paintref.com,http://paintref.com/cgi-bin/colorcodedisplay.cgi?type=paint&paint=19496&ditzler=3121&syear=1979&smanuf=GM&smodel=Pontiac&sname=Dark%20Blue:

Ditzler/PPG # 3121

Dupont # 45801LH (Lucite acrylic lacquer), 45801A (Centari enamel) or 45801DH (Dulux enamel)

Sherwin Williams # 30222

There is only two colors to paint such a car...black and red. The only reason to paint it black is you haven't decided to paint it red yet.
