Are the 74 DT360 and 75 DT250 oil tanks the same?

just ordered this online...It looks like a 75 DT250B based on the color and decal.  Is there a color match (the portugese orange that is...) out there for this?
74 DT 360 ... resto in progress.

Duplicolor Ceramic Engine Paint Chevy Orange is an exact...  I mean exact...  match to the Portuguese Orange used on the 1976 RD350.  I used it to touch up a couple of little chips in an original tank that had been stored indoors and to repaint one of the side covers that was scratched.  You could not tell any difference in color.  It was the most amazing touch up job I've ever done.

If the question is 'are the oil tanks physically the same?', then I think for all intents and purposes, the answer would be 'yes'. Color and decals aside, of course.
