Paint in '83 would have been Imron, heaven knows what the actual color is. I've had good luck touching it up by mixing Testor's model paint black and silver to get the right color. Easiest way to mix is to tape a Ziploc bag to a piece of cardboard and put a small amount of each color on it, then mix in the middle until correct. You'll need more black than silver.
