No, Grecian Green is code 43775 Ditzler, or 4902 Dupont.  Frost Green is 2080 Ditzler or 5012 Dupont

Thats probably why they dropped the color was the name.
I found something for an engine I have and it has an average paint job in red, and it needs the fenders redone. Original color is grecian green and not sure I would put it back to that color.

The vinyl top would help break it up
I had heard it called mountain green. Looks like grecian was dropped half way thru production

Someone had painted mine Grecian green years ago and I really liked it. Don't see that color too often.

This is now some form of red and needs the front fenders and hood painted and may go back to the green. This will be one of those deals if the front is off and the engine is out, oh lets pull the subframe and grab the rotisserie lol
