Not sure if anyone is still following this thread/post but Paintscratch.com has Golden Eagle wheel paint. The DITZLER/PPG CODE 23674 is “Corsican Gold Poly” P-41 which was available on all 1962 AMC vehicles.

I bought the “Corsican Gold Poly” and it does not match.

The PPG color sheet for 1978 American Motors list 72R35 Gold (Ditzler 23681) for stripping which looked pretty close to the wheel color.

AMC was not much for details.

I am not sure if anyone is still following this but I found the original paint color codes used for the early 1977,78 Golden Eagle Jeeps. I am not sure if the gold wheels where only for the bodies painted with AMC Golden Oak (7E) or the gold wheels where used for all years the Golden Eagle package was used.

Even though the GE was first produced (with a limited edition sticker) in 1977, you can find the gold wheel color code (72R35 or PPG/Ditzer 23681) on the 1978 PPG American Motors color samples sheet. The gold was the same color listed for “STRIPPING COLORS”.

I was able to purchase 1 spray can for ~$40 ($27.95 paint, $13.48 shipping) from CarPaintonline.com.

Pretty expensive for 1, 12oz can but now I can spray my own chip and resample the color at any hardware store.

I too was able to order a 12 oz can of this hard to find color. I just went through painting the wheels on my CJ 5 GE and they don't match the correct color. I also found a dupont color number for this color it is 45275LH. Thank you CNT, your post was most helpful.
