What is the best rattle can paint match for a 1972 Sears Suburban SS15?
I heard that Duplicor makes a light metalic blue that is close. Thoughts?

The old Pontiac light blue metallic engine paint is pretty close, its just off a slight shade of green.

The closest your going to get to factory paint without having it custom mixed is ( Rust-Oleum 7219830 Hammered Metal Finish, Verde Green ) because of the metal flake and slight green tint.

 

Here is a couple sears tractors that was painted with Rust-Oleum 7219830 It's really close to the original color. The one without the engine was painted with ( Rust-Oleum 7212830 Hammered Metal Finish, Light Blue ) but as you can see it's a bit to light and doesn't have the slight green tint.

 

Original paint is called Metallic Jade Mist.
