Before some of the other guys chime in, it looks like you are new to the E-World! Welcome! I joined back in march and I was pointed here: http://www.vintage-vans.com/ford_parts_links.html early on. There is lots of great info there, spend some time just reading and you'll find answers to questions you didn't know you had! classicinlines.com is a pretty good engine resource as well. Google is your friend!

The answer to your question as always is: it depends. Which engine do you have? As I learned, just because it's in a '66 doesn't mean its a '66!

Welcome and good luck.

If its a 66, it should be ford corporate blue, including the valve covers.

It appears after cleaning the flexplate, Blue could have been the original cover, assuming its all original, ford blue it is !!
