Thanks in advance.
472 colors You can spend a lot of money on the correct color, but some of us just use the cheap & much more available Fo*d blue. Bruce Roe Re: 472 colors I am thinking there is a GM blue available in spray cans that is not too far off. That is what I used on my 77, 425 anyway. You will need to paint the entire eng as nothing will match aged paint on an engine. Re: 472 colors I actually found 2 GM blue bombs at O'Riley Auto Parts for around $5.99
F*rd blue??!! Maybe in a pinch Re: 472 colors I think the ford blue is about the closest but I'm pretty sure eastwood sells the correct color if you can wait a couple days. Re: 472 colors The GM blue is much lighter than the old Cadillac blue. Go with F*rd blue. I won't tell anyone.
Here is GM blue: Re: 472 colors They had 2 GM blues at O'Riley Auto. The one I got was much darker. Closer to light navy than blue. Will post pics later. Re: 472 colors Didn't the 472's & 500's use the darker Cadillac Blue which was almost a purple? I don't think the corporate blue started until 1977.
