GTO Engine Color
 
I'm have a 1966 GTO 389 that was recently rebuilt and is still on the engine stand in my shop. I want to paint and detail it before I put it back in the car. Does anyone know the correct color number for the original metallic blue that was used on the GTO engine back then? Dupont, I hope.

Thanks for your help!

Check with O'Reilly auto parts. They have Pontiac blue in spray cans. I used some one my LeMans engine.

FYI- Pontiac used two blues. An early blue (ugly pastel) and a late blue (metalic industrial) look.
