Rattle can engine touch up

I need to touch up my 389 in my '65 GTO and have had no luck matching the color.
I have #208 Pontiac blue from Valspar and DE 1616 Duplicolor which both have a silver
like color that I see in the later model motors.
Can anyone steer me to the non metallic old school blue green color I can order?
The #208 was what Ames sent me when I told them what I was searching for.

Good to hear because that's what I have coming Wednesday.
Edit- just got my can in and it matches well!
The hotter areas of the motor age into a greenish hue.

The list shows #208 Plastikote which is either incorrect or my can was missmarked.
