Original Colors for 3rd Gen Novas

I am trying to pick a color to paint my nova (the one pictured below, but has since been stripped, sandblasted and epoxy primed) and i am hoping to stick with an original color. I am looking for pictures of cars in the original colors offered in 1971 on the nova. I haven't been able to find a collection as of yet, so if someone can point me to one, great, otherwise, please post pics of 3rd gens in the following colors here and we can start one.

11 = Antique White
13 = Nevada Silver
19 = Tuxedo Black
24 = Ascot Blue
26 = Mulsanne Blue
42 = Cottonwood Green
43 = Lime Green
49 = Antique Green
52 = Sunflower Yellow
53 = Placer Gold
61 = Sandalwood
62 = Burnt Orange
67 = Classic Copper
75 = Cranberry Red
78 = Rosewood Metallic

Here are the colors i already have (will update as i receive/find more pics)


I am specifically interested in Antique Green, Mulsanne Blue, Cottonwood green, cranberry red and rosewood Metallic

the bigger the pics are the better, email pics to me if you would rather
