I agree with Keith. The steering wheel color opposite black is more of an ivory color with the same reverse pattern on the D wheel. Don’t try to match it with the desert beige of the dash. It is different. 300’ly, Rob Kern

With little effort I think I could come up with a code for the desert beige on the dash of my car, which I think ended up pretty much a dead-on match to the original shade.
That said, I don't think the original beige of the plastic used for for the '57 steering wheel was all that close to the dash color. It always looks a little off to me when I see a steering wheel restored using the dash color. The steering wheel beige, from what I have observed, is roughly of the same color depth, but it seems to have a more yellowish tint to the beige than the dash does.
I will send you a couple of photos in an off-forum email which will show you what I mean.
