    I've only seen modern Ford engines painted blue. If you're not mixing together your own batch, there should be the proper color available in both raw and spray can. At least, it used to be that way, decades ago

    Yeah, any spray can of Ford Engine Blue is close enough. A concours restoration would require a custom-mixed batch to be correct enough.
