Not sure if there is a paint code but I just used Ford Engine Blue when I painted my valve covers last year.

The question is which 'Ford blue'? Back in the day when they painted blocks it was a deeper blue than how the current cam cover blue is.

From the above Mustang History, 1968:

If I remember right duplicolor even has two different paint codes for ford blue. The older version and the newer one. When I painted my garage floor I used the older one. And yes it is darker.

Red is also nice,but blue looks more Original.Maybe red looks better because the mustang is red outside.Still think what color too use now.
