Ford code M1623 M1623A - blue
This blue automotive paint color is most commonly known as Skylight Blue. Other common color promotional names include Glacier Blue and Blue. The color formulation has been used between 1964 and 1969, primarily by Ford; but also by Mercury. We have records of this color appearing on the following models: Ford Truck, Mustang, Comet, Fairlane, Galaxie, and Falcon. See the full detailed list below.

Ford paint manufacturing codes come in two forms, the short 1 to 3 digit model/year code which changes frequently and the longer 4 digit code which starts with the letters "M", "WT", or "MX70x". M are production paints, WT and MX are commercial or special order. These longer codes don't change over the years for a particular paint formulation; therefore, it is the best code to track the usage of Ford paint. Ford production paint codes starting with "M1" are some of the very early paints which also used an "M2J" or "M20J" or "M30J" with or without spaces or dashes. So this paint is also known as M2J-1623 or M20J-1623 or M30J-1623... Later 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. For Ford, this longer 4 digit paint code is often not found printed anywhere on the vehicle. Many times it is coded on the factory build sheet which may have stayed with the vehicle after production and is sometimes found under the interior carpet or rear seat. Factory repaint or special order paints may have the 4 digit paint code hand written on the radiator shroud with a wax pen.
