..... photographs can and often do distort the actual color of the car as it appears in real life.  Without an actual paint code, it will be only a best guess.
Even paint codes can be useless today. Paint type/chemistry has changed over the years and the old formulas don't translate well. There has been great strides taken in the ability to scan what is on the car now and letting the computer create a new formula with new paints. The process is accurate enough to match faded areas. It's critical if doing a full restoration rather than matching a panel to scan a door jam or some other area that hasn't been exposed to UV rays.
Yes point well taken.  I had not thought of that variable but you're right.

Small block eight so live she feels
There she's parked beside the curb
Engine revving to disturb
She's the princess from his past
Red paint gold stripes damned she's fast"

Caspian Blue perhaps?  Or a blend of Guardsman and Caspian?

Sounds like a fun build.

Cheers
