I would not be too quick to rule out a factory color. There was a different blue metallic ofered by Jeep in 1974, '75 and '76. In '74 it was Jetset Blue Poly (very popular), and in '75 and '76 it was Medium Blue Poly, but each of those years have a different formula.

If I weren't trying to match a specific OEM color, I'd just pick the Kirker paint that comes closest to the blue I want http://dadscustoms.com/autobody_supp...at-gallon.html Good paint, and much less expensive than matching an OEM color.

AutoBodyToolmart will send you a Kirker color sheet at no charge https://www.autobodytoolmart.com/kir...s-p-12659.aspx If you wanted a lighter metallic blue, you could buy a quart of silver and lighten any of the blue colors to what you want.
