1940 Ford Lyon Blue paint
This blue automotive paint color is most commonly known as Lyon Blue. The color formulation has been used only in 1940, primarily by Ford; but also by Mercury. We have records of this color appearing on the Mercury and Ford Truck. See the full detailed list below.

The longer Ford paint manufacturing code is M1799 or M1799A. Ford production paint codes starting with M are usually followed by a 4 digit number and the letter "A" indicating its an exterior paint. The same code ending in the letter "G" is common for interior paints. These longer manufacturing codes are useful for tracking paint usage.
