'01 & '08/'09 Exterior Color

I have an '01, and am restoring a '68. Eventually I would like to either get an '08/'09 or swap my '01 for one. However, in my restoration of the '68 I would like to paint it the same highland green of the '01 (code PY) and not using the same Highland Green (code R) as was used in '68. Even though I know the '08/'09 is paint code PX, I have never seen an '01 and a '08/'09 next to one another in person. I've found a few pics online and they look close(ish). I don't want to paint the '68 like the '01 if it doesn't match the '08/'09. I love the '19, but that color is an entirely different monster! Any advice?

all 3 years are different colors.
i don't have the formulas handy. but basically the newer year color is the more pearl and specialty metallic is in it. the older formulas usually the tints are obsolete and no longer used, mostly because they have lead or chromate in them. replacement tints might be made but it won't be exactly the same color.
pick a color from the year of your choice and go from there.
