Dupont code 93-2063 - blue
This blue automotive paint color is most commonly known as Boatswain Blue. Another common paint color promotional name is Blue. The color formulation has been used between 1934 and 1969, primarily by Fruehauf; but also by Chevrolet, Frito-Lay, GMC, and Ford. We have records of this color appearing on the following models: Fruehauf Truck, Chevy Truck, Chevrolet Special Order / Fleet, Ford Special Order / Fleet, and GMC. See the full detailed list below.

Dupont codes starting with "246-" and ending with a 4 or 5 digit number where used from 1920 through the 50's with a few "93-", "202-", and "210" prefixed codes thrown in early on. "93-" paint codes appear to be reserved for Truck/Fleet or very popular paints while the "202-" and "210" where metallic paints. As new paint types came out more prefixes were introduced and the 4 or 5 digit suffix became a very good way to track paint usage between years.
