It would be most true that it was.

It depends what gold was used on your honeycombs. If they are original then likely highly faded, if not then they could be anything. If just needing to touch up chips then take the paint code to the nearest paint mixing shop.
Ditzler #82352 otherwise known as Pontiac 55 gold.

depends on the original color, but this is the cheapest & best match spray paint to redo or touch up the gold honeycomb wheels.

Gold honeycombs only came on the 50th Anniversary SE cars. I'm not sure why OER lists different paints for the wheels, they are the same gold regardless of name. Perhaps the different part number is simply for their listing but contains same paint.

not sure why the different names either... but the paint covers other wheels & trim parts for other cars.  pretty sure this gold was used on z28 rims, cutlass 442 rims etc. & is probably the same basic color as the later WS6 snowflakes too.  whats in the oer cans is not a direct match to the original GM paint codes anyways, just a very close acceptable color for all but 100 point concours restorations.

Well, that in itself is possibly still the best and easiest paint match for a quick wheel, grille or brake light cage if doing it yourself.
