Correct 1968 engine block color

I've seen it called Pontiac "light blue", but I've seen pictures where it almost appears a light silvery blue. Are these the same thing? I know it's not the darker blue you see on the later 70's blocks, right?
Can someone shed some light on this for me?

Thank you.

Dig some more digging and think I found it. Pontiac "Light Blue Metallic" sound correct?
