I think that you will find that each auto paint supplier has a propritary formula for their paint. In the US of A, we go to a paint store and order what we want so what the paint's makeup is does not matter, as long as it matches. With the new polution laws we have, formulas have changed even more.

Yeah, I just took my trunk lid into a paint shop to match the color, and they mixed it up and it was perfect.  My body shop man was happy with it, so this isn't rocket science.

I wouldn't use a paint strip to match.  Again, take a trunk lid to an auto  paint shop to match the colors if you want to keep it the same.  If you want to change colors, that's a different story.

Here is the Dupont stock number for Acapulco Blue - 13357. The theory is that you can cross reference this number at an automobile paint supplier.

I'm not sure what your question is, but this is the current Dupont stock number for the paint. I got it from a friend who had his 67 Fastback painted two years ago.

For a 1967, the Acapulco blue had a D7 code D.  It was also available for the 1968 and 1969 models.  The grabber blue took the place of Acapulco blue in 1970.  I doubt seriously that any acapulco blue would match the same color as those three years.

Use Jim's numbers for the correct paint color, or call Ford with the 1967 D7 code for 1967.

The Ford paint code won't do you any good as Ford does not support parts or materials on cars over 10 years of age. For what it's worth, the Ford Service name for the paint is "Bright Blue Metallic" for 67 thru 69, "Medium Blue Metallic" for 70 and 71. The Ford Service part number for both names as shown in the 1975 Ford Car Parts book is "AR60-3077-C".
The picture is of a friend's 1967 Fastback "A" code that I helped restore a couple of years back.
