Probably you will have to tell us what is the trim code for this car!
As the steering wheel color is indeed molded plastic, there is no code for that. From a '59 paint chart I have, there is no Wood rose metallic as interior color. Most probably, the trim code will allow to determine with the help from a '59 specification manual which were the interior colors.

From a 23,000 mile Woodrose Series 62 Coupe with trim #34 "Black/Rose Metallic Carlisle Cloth with Rose Metallic coated fabric".

Appears to be the same wheel as what you have.

Not sure if you already have a vendor to re-do your steering wheel, but if not I'd like to recommend Quality Restorations.
He did a steering wheel for my 1965 Eldorado and he did a great job.

Not cheap but you get what you pay for.
Good luck with your project!

Thanks for the recommendation. However, I believe I contacted them and they are unable to reproduce the grip texture on the sides of the wheel. 

Anyway - I've learned that there is truly no "Paint Code" for the molded plastic of the steering wheel and the shift / blinker levers.  However, below is some guidance on the dash color paint that is applied to the various metal dash parts (and additional info).

My car:

Trim 48              (48   Rose Coronado Metallic Cloth & Rose Metallic Leather   59-6329,37,39 dV)  Interior Dash Paint: is called “Dusk Pink” PPG Paint Code:
70913  interior, which is a more metallic version of PPG 50537 which is exterior color of Wood Rose)

Paint 49-12            (49   Wood rose Metallic on the bottom /  12   Dover White Top)
