Pontiac also used that combo on their '58s. The colors are Starmist Silver
and Mallard Turquoise ('58), and it is shown on a Star Chief Safari in that year's catalog. I have the '58 Safari in those colors on one of those repro tin signs on the wall of my garage.

I saw a '56 in those colors long ago, but I've never seen, and don't believe that Pontiac used, the same combination on their '57 Safaris. There's no similar dark turquoise on the ACL chart.
