I was just gonna say cuz it's Dupont and there don't seem to be many of those charts out there... but apparently I was wrong. But this is the only Dupont chart I've ever seen.

Actually has it listed as metallic instead of poly.

This particular DuPont chart you are showing is for car only, they have a seperate one for truck colors.

So they did actually use it on the trucks for those years? Curiosity kicked in and I've been looking for a DuPont chart and haven't found one online or on ebay.

Use it? Do you mean did they originally paint these trucks with DuPont paint? If thats the question I don't know the answer, not sure who the factory paint was made by.

I have a complete color book from the mid 80's-earlier out in the garage. My Dad used to own a parts store that I worked at back in the 80's and when we closed up shop I took it with.

Thank you for posting this information, it answers all my questions on what paint code I'll need for the Dark Blue Metallic colored paint I want to use on my 79 Bronco.
