If you want what may be the best match, the Ditzler code (PPG) is DQE
50782Y in alkyd enamel. A good automotive paint store can match to that
code for you if they don't have the exact brand. I put this on over an
etching primer and it's pretty durable. The Ditzler product is
recommended by Robert Vitrikas in MGA History and Restoration Guide.
