Opinions on Shade of Blue for a 1967

Hello everyone, I have just finished the body work on my 1967 project coupe. I've planned on painting it blue since I got it, but now that it's done and time to decide, I find myself overwhelmed with the amount of options that Ford provides. Which would you choose? (Top 3)

If you're sticking to factory correct colors, I personally like the darker ones - dark blue and nightmist.

If you want to go off the reservation, there is always DIB or Kona blue!

You've read my mind! Dark Blue and Kona Blue were my favorites as well haha. I think I'll stick with Dark Blue to stay original. How do you feel about metallic flakes? Yay or nay?

I personally don't mind flake if it's not super obnoxious. It's not original, an costs more to paint/touch up though.

Okay guys. After a long day of thinking.. I have narrowed it down to these three colors:

1) Dark Blue
2) Deep Impact Blue
3) Kona Blue

A little voice inside of me is telling me to go with Deep Impact Blue. I like the Kona Blue, but I dislike that it has a purple-ish tint under a certain lighting. The problem with Dark Blue is that I haven't seen it in person in years, and starring at pictures is no help since they all vary. As for pearls or flakes, I have no clue what I'm going to do there.

I think you should go with Caspian Blue. It's the dark blue that looks almost black. I absolutely love it.
