1970s Sovereign Exterior Trim Blue?

Trying to match the trim. Was it Ford Blue the closest?

Do not want to do the vinyl but matching the paint.

Thanks for any info. I tried to find a matching thread but gave up.

Rustoleum Royal Blue or Ford Blue? Anyone know the original?

Found several links to a pdf from Airstream but does not work any longer or gone now?

Thank you both. Sure wish we knew the original.

Redoing the emblem that is red, white and blue. Now to find the matching red.

It has the blue well enough to possibly match close with the Royal Blue.

About an 1/8 inch long spot of the red. What fun.

We gutted down to the chassis and every inch of this baby is being redone.

Look for it to be done oh about 2025 I figure. Trying to put it all back as original as possible. 1970 and all.

Does not seem to be many that do this though I have discovered. I can see why. Like a needle in a haystack at times.
