Arrow original factory paint colours..?

hi just finally recieved my very first project of this type ( wrigley truck - VILLIERS engine PETROL ) i am planning on restoring it to the factory colour scemelol but unfortunally i dont know what it is it would be greatful if any of you guy's out there that do know or that can lead me in any direction of finding out the colours

at the moment the previous owner had painted the visual bits red & black and is a complete half done job but i am willing to undertake the challange of bringing this little truck back to life for one last time

but a little wouldnt go wrong as i am new to this
