MCW makes a perfect match. You can get it in airbrush bottle or spray can. Both are lacquer. Spray can is 2621 Light Blue. I don't know the airbrush number off hand.

Be careful with other manufacturers Gulf blue. To me, the cars that have run over the last 20 years are a slightly darker shade of blue. If they color matched the new cars, it will be wrong for the old 917s & GT40s. I know the MCW color is correct.

I see that Gravity specifically states theirs as "60 & 70s Gulf Blue", so that should be correct.

Back in the day, the color was called "powder" blue.
