Sounds like it's a six cylinder car? They had different paint codes.

If you're ordering paint for anything other than a complete respray, DO NOT expect it to match just because you got the right paint code. The paints and tints (etc) that were available 30 years ago have been discontinued and replaced with new "technology" and so the color changes slightly. The same paint code will look completely different depending on the line of paint you buy, DuPont will look different than PPG which will look different from PPG Omni, etc ad naseum. If you need to match to respray a single part (i.e. fender, decklid) you need to bring the car or a painted part to have the color computer matched.
