Interesting comment. I can't say not having seen it in person. I'll need to get some sample spray-outs to be sure.

There are a lot of pictures of Bluette in this photoset, but they are all shot under an overcast northern sky

But the Bluette seems more greenish than blue to me.
If you want a blue Alfa, then there is Le Mans Blue (light), French Blue (medium) and Dutch Blue (dark).
I think Bluette sounds more blue than it is in reality...

I don't mean to belabor this point, but it's one of particular interest to me as my own 105.36 (Giulia Sprint Veloce) was originally blue and it took me quite a while to figure out the proper name for it.

The photos of the car in the Netherlands appears to me, to be nearly identical (hard to tell in photos) to the shade of blue on my car, which I believe to be "Medium Cobalt Blue." That said, the Dutch car, being an earlier version, 105.02, was only available in the following colors (according to d'Amico and Tabucchi's "Alfa Romeo Production Cars 1962-2007); azzurro spazio and bluette. The english translation of these colors is "Space Blue" and "Light Blue." Stating the obvious, those descriptions would indicated that the Dutch car is "Space Blue" (think, a deep, dark, nearly black shade of blue) and not "light blue."

By the time the 105.36 cars had gone in to production the shades of blue available were "bleu chiaro metallizzato," "bluette," "bleu cobalto medio," or in english, "metallic light blue," "light blue", "medium cobalt blue," and "space blue."

Here's a photo of the factory original paint on my car which I believe to be "medium cobalt blue."

IMG_1745 by gearheadexchange, on Flickr

Why am I confident that this color is in fact "Medium Cobalt Blue"? I had my painter mix up a small amount of paint based on the paint code for "Cobalt Blue" as listed here ALFA ROMEO PAINT CODES and the result was a perfect match for the factory paint found under my door sill covers and dashboard. This, despite the fact that are are inconsistencies regarding names and production dates on the Veloceregister's paint codes sections.

I'm interested in all thoughts, opinions, and feedback.

Ciao!

After being of the road for a few months while I replaced all the steering components, had a wheel alignment done yesterday,
And she's back on the road,
I missed driving it.
