Nocturne blue.  Looks good -- 400 // 4 speed, looks like a light blue interior.  Nice ride.
indeed, im debating which shade of blue i wanna paint my car; the atlantis blue is a more silverish shade of blue right? which one looks better midnight blue or that nocturne color? i was thinking to go with atlantis because this picture looks real clean but it looks like those pics i posted earlier which is nocturne blue looks like this one, but on the description they say it is atlantis blue.


is this nocturne blue?

The cowl tag should have a 24 for the color code if it's Atlantis, a 19 if it's Nocturne.  It looks brighter in this shot, hence Atlantis.  The paint looks good - does it need paint elsewhere?  It's your car, but it's more valuable with the original color.

The cowl probably has a 24N for the vinyl blue interior.

The youtube video looked Nocturne blue but the sun was bright - it looked a little brighter than others I've seen.

Nice T/A. The color of your T/A is  Nocturne blue.

Below is what Atlantis blue looks like.

I stand corrected.  If yours is Nocturne, per the cowl tag info given, I thought the Nocturne blue was considerably darker than the blue you've posted.  There's probably a bunch more images posted prior to your post that must have been Nocturne - only available in `79.  Good luck.

IIRC, Nocturne Blue is color code 29.  GM used a lot of color code 29s over the years -- Admiralty Blue was one and Stellar Blue was another.  I'm not sure how the paint formulations differed.  All of those are a dark blue mettalic.  Lucerne Blue is a different color altogether.

No admiralty blue ... only two blues available in `79.  Yes, rick is right on Nocturne - it's 29, not 19 which is black - typo, oops.
