Ford code MX700565 - 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.

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.

MX codes were called "126 Ford Fleet Colors", were special order, and in many cases they originally came from other manufacturers due to their popularity. In this case, MX700565 appears to be a special order paint which matches 1950 Fruehauf Truck Boatswain Blue.
