Paint Help Needed

One of the projects I’ve had hanging around the longest, is a ‘66 GTO, using HWs bits and pieces, for an old high school buddy of mine.
I have the body, several of them in fact (due to quality control having the afternoon off that day/week). I found the red interior from the HWs Garage series, so that’s taken care of.
I have the Real Riders ready to go, from a Larry’s Garage GTO hardroof. ‘67 of course, like the convertible bodies, no ‘66 made.
The only thing I’m having problems with, and this may sound familiar, is the paint. I don’t mean applying it, for once, I’m getting better at that.
My issue is finding the Pontiac Montero Red, code WA 3309, or as close to that color as I can get, in a spray can.
None of the local auto parts stores have it, nor are they willing to order it for me. Online I have found the color available in spray paint form,but only if I’m willing to spend anywhere from $30 to $50 on one can. Plus shipping. Amazon doesn’t even stock it, they want to sell me paint for a Mitsubishi Montero.
Can anyone point me to a color matching site online that might help me find the closest color available in a “stock” color? Does such a site even exist?
I don’t mind that I paid for several cars to get this project going, so far I’m still under $10, but I balk at spending that much for the paint for one car. I’d greatly appreciate any help I can get with this. Thanks...
