The closest match I've found is PlastiKote #277 Pontiac Metallic Blue for the '66-'72 engines and PlasiKote #208 Pontiac Blue for the '59-'65 Pontiac engines.
All the engine paints will burn off at the exhaust flange portion of the cylinder heads, whether you prime them or not. Paint rated at 500 degrees F. will not withstand the 1000 degrees + that this area is exposed to. The Eastwood ceramic paint also will discolor in this area. It would be interesting to see photos of this area from those who claim otherwise.
If you plan to drive the car, use only a thin coat of engine paint at the exhaust flange area and redo it as necessary.
