1978 green color

I found this 1978 911 SC with a green color that I really love, was this sold in the US? I have never seen another 911 in this color. What's the name and paint code for this color?



edit:

Found this page with 911 SC colors: http://www.adelgigs.com/911colours.shtml

One color looks just lik this one, Olive Green. Too bad the website shows only color samples, not car photos.

Here's the post for the Olive Green 911 for sale in Japan: http://exchange.goo-net.com/usedcars/spread/700957168620110117002.html

It is really a beautiful color:

I haven't found any references with 911 SC colors yet, but found a page with 964 colors, that 911 SC color seems to be between Oak Green and Irish Green, but looks more like an Olive Green (a shiny Olive Drab). I would love to find a 911 in that color. The one in the picture is for sale in Japan.

Wow, never seen that color on a 911 before. Olive of some sort. Nice!

Looking at this page here (http://www.adelgigs.com/911colours.shtml) it looks like this is the Olive Green (seems reasonable as it looks just like olive green...). Too bad that site has colors sample, not photos of 911s in each color... It is such a pretty color for a 911, I never had any affinity for cars in green but this 911 SC has changed my mind.
