    Just wondered if anyone can identify this shade of blue.

    I love the color and am considering it for my 26 RPU.

    Any ideas on how to match it ? Have a photo made and then ?? :confused:

    N.Y. giants blue. i know that doesn't help sorry. can you get a sample? paint supply houses con match colors from samples. if they match a color ,buy a small amount and do a spray out. it's worth the effort and cost to get it right and any wrong sample can be used for undersides or "first" coats.

    Looks like something from a newer car..like a corvette or nissan 350Z or something similar. Take a stroll through your local dealership or look online and I'm sure you'll have some luck. Neat color though

    Looks like Royal Blue. Try Rust-oleum to see if theirs is close.

    A good paint place will have that new "camara" that takes a picture of the color up close & prints out the formula....

    Looks like 70 Mustang/Cougar "grabber blue". AMC had a similar "big bad blue", Mopar had "bahama blue". Any of those can be tinted to your vision of the color.



    quick edit, If that car were trimmed in a shade of say, "vanilla" instead of that red...

    The car is owned by someone who isn't on the Hamb apparently and lives a long ways from me. So unfortunately a sample isn't possible. I have tried to have someone contact the owner for info, so far no luck.

    the sample doesn't have to be from that car. it could be anything they can scan or eye match. even a N.Y. giants helmet!

    Called Bill and had a chat, he's a nice guy. Said his blue kind of matches the local mail boxes on the street corners. :)

    We talked a little about his car and some of the ins and outs of building model Ts.

    Was good to bench race with a fellow rodder.

    He gave me some info on the paint and will let me know if he has a specific mix number or formula or something like that.

    Thanks for the help Tom

    It also looks like the blue from a 1975-1978 Chevy Luv pickup.

    It looks like "By-God Blue" to me.

    Or maybe Ford Blue

    Mazda has a color called "Nile Blue" that looks exactly like this. I used it on my Stock Car back in the mid 80's. Nice color.
