One would expect an exact match from the same manufacturer no matter what the batch. How hard can that be?

When I was working on the shop I wanted to paint brake lathe, hydraulic press and rotisserie Ford Corporate Blue. I went to Lowe's and they sell a paint like Rustoleum but they can custom mix the paint. They laser scanned a vale cover and mixed the paint for me. Matched great. We use to have to paint the Ford tooling Corporate blue also.
The picture of the engine is the one out of my 73 The engine is original Ford paint I had to repaint the oil pan due to lots of surface rust. That is Duplicolor and looks pretty close.
