Marina blue is slightly lighter than Nassau blue. You can see both on
the same chip page here:
as for 66 the Corvette still used Nassau blue.
I would GUESS that the two blue cars in your first picture are:
foreground, Mist blue and second car, Nassau or Marina blue depending on
year of the second car.
Of course people change colors, use non-code colors, use "shelf paint" (
mix several cans together of different formulas), etc. So go to a show
and ask questions of the owner for best results.

>The color I'm looking for was on a 66, but the picture I linked is a 65 and I believe it is the same color... the paint on that 65 I linked is what I want either way. We also owned a 66 that was a lighter blue then I am looking for.... very near silver in some light conditions.. I'm looking for more blue then that. I am not looking for the turquoise that has a very definite greenish tinge... is Artesian Turqoise greenish?
>How dark is Marina blue...... how light is Mist blue... is that the "almost silver" color?
>This is the almost silver blue I am NOT looking for that was on the 66'

>My best guess at this point is Mist blue since its the only 65' color that looks close.. but if thats it then what is the lighter 66 color? Artesian turquoise?
