Based on a number of mid '60s Fords with original engine paint that I've seen over the years, I think the shade of blue varied depending on where the engine was built during that time. Who knows how much time and heat have affected the color? The accepted color in the concours Mustang world is PPG DAR 13358. Painting it black is certainly an easier option.
