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.
