1959 Fruehauf Blue paint
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 Chevrolet; but also by Fruehauf, Frito-Lay, GMC, and Ford. We have records of this color appearing on the following models: Chevy Truck, Fruehauf Truck, Chevrolet Special Order / Fleet, Ford Special Order / Fleet, and GMC. See the full detailed list below.

The longer Ford paint manufacturing code is MX700565. Ford paint codes starting with MX are usually older (pre 1970) special order paints that have been matched to popular paints from other manufacturers such as GM or Chrysler. This longer manufacturing code is useful for tracking paint usage.
