Original color of engine paint

Which one of the many AMC blue colors is original for an 85 CJ7? I just painted the engine in my 73 commando AMC Blue (supplied from Eastwood) but sources say the AMC Blue color changed in 74. Would the paint used in 85 be the same color as used in 74? Anyone have a good source for the AMC blue I am needing?

Not sure of the exact color, but Krylon Pontiac Blue matched my 74 304 exactly. Course, I'm not entirely sure that what I matched WAS the original color! Still, it looks right to my eyes.
