DuPont was probably the sole supplier to all Fisher/Chevrolet plants at that time, but John/Kurt may refine the answer further.

That's correct - all GM plants used DuPont phosphate chemicals, primer, sealer, and topcoats (DuPont was the largest single GM stockholder in those days). GM didn't start using other paint suppliers until the 80's.
