'68 GTO dash paint

The bottom part of the dash/instrument panel in my '68 GTO appears to be a kind of flat black color. It is scratched in many places and has acquired a definite "patina". I'm torn between leaving it original or re-painting it.

If I do re-paint it, does anyone know what the exact black color of it is? Is it flat black or a partial flat black or what? The condition of the original is hard to ascertain. Is it something I could get at a local paint store or is it something Eastwood or Ames would have? Not knowing the exact color black it is keeps me from checking out paints for it. Appreciate the help!

The top of the dash is 30% gloss and the lower section is 60% gloss, the change occurs roughly where the dash turns downward.
